star is keen to start a music camp for kids with special needs - and dedicate it to her aunt, who has Down syndrome. The pop star hopes to team up with Los Angeles radio personality Todd Michael Krim to give disabled kids and Down syndrome youngsters a special place to sing and learn to play instruments. And it's all thanks to her aunt.

Scherzinger says, "I grew up with my aunt, who is actually younger than me because my grandmother had her at an older age, and she has Down syndrome. She has always had a special place in my heart and is such a wonderful addition to our family, so when Todd asked me if I was passionate about any charities or causes, I immediately thought of her."

"I want to bring awareness to how special people with Down syndrome are... I used to tell my girls in the Pussycat Dolls that I would have my own musical camp or school where I would teach people with special disabilities or Down syndrome."
