Down Syndrome Association Hopes to Capture Justin Timberlake’s Attention

Local News

The Down Syndrome Association of Memphis & the Mid-South is hoping a video it produced will capture the attention of Justin Timberlake.

Two weeks ago, the organization and its self-advocates put together a dancing video. It features people singing and dancing along to “Can’t Stop the Feeling.”

DSA’s executive director Martine Hobson told Local 24 she would like to see the video go viral.

“I love Justin Timberlake,” said Breonna Allen. The 16-year-old was featured in the video and said she would like to see the pop star lead their event.

“I’ve seen JT do amazing work with St. Jude’s,” said Breonna’s father, Jeffery. “Please JT, step up!”

The Down Syndrome Association is holding its 20th annual Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk on October 15th at Christian Brothers University.

The group is asking the Mid-South to spread the word and make the video go viral by using the hashtag #StepUpJT.

Last year more than 3,000 people attended the event, which raises awareness about Down Syndrome and helps put families in contact with the resources needed to navigate life with Down Syndrome.
