Because I am hard-of-hearing, being able to relate to music has always been difficult for me. However, I discovered that interpreting songs with American Sign Language allows me to have my own special connection and understanding of music. I was thrilled to be cast in a professional show in Chicago where I got to perform songs using ASL. The rest of the cast was hearing, and I was excited to share the beauty of sign language with them (and with our audiences each night!).
