And finally tonight, the doctor who believes every newborn boy and girl should arrive on Earth to a smile and a song. They call him the singing doctor. He's welcomed thousands of babies with the music of their new lives. And here's ABC's John donvan. ? Happen Y birthday to you ? Reporter: A baby arrives -- and a song is sung. Another baby -- and again -- singing. ? I watch them grow ? Reporter: And again and again. For by this time, something like 6,000 deliveries, 6,000 vocal performances brought off by a man whose name sounds like a 1960s pop lyric. Carey Andrew ja-ja. Obstetrician. To this family, this is special. Reporter: He works out of Magee women's hospital- of upmc and he's been singing to newborns since his training days, because one of his teachers was also a sing iing obstetrician. His name was frank arch and he loved to sing. So, years later after I had finished my residency and he was about to retire, he asked me to continue the tradition. And I've done it ever since. Reporter: So much so that new mothers like Sarah fest would now be disappointed if Dr. Ja-ja had not sung when her daughter Quinn was born. That was her first happy birthday. Reporter: Now, okay. Look at these faces. Sure there's some science that says newborns respond well to music. But that's not what a ja-ja song is really for. Instead, it's a celebration. A welcome. A benediction. Welcome to the wonderful world. Reporter: It is memorable, and Sarah says they will show this tape to Quinn in future years and they will keep the song going. Which is great, because that is why he sings. ? What a wonderful world ? Reporter: John donvan, ABC news, Washington.
