I never thought I would post a song like this,
but I loved the energy of this person's movement,
similar to an incredible conductor.

And I find it incredibly interesting that music festivals talk about making performances relatable.

Eminem's Lose Yourself as performed by Shelby Mitchusson in American Sign Language.

Amber Galloway Gallego is an American Sign Language interpreter who specializes in doing rap and hip-hop concerts.
As an American Sign Language interpreter who specializes in music performance, Gallego has interpreted over 300 rap, R&B, and rock concerts, and has worked with everyone from Aerosmith to Destiny's Child. After a deaf friend told her that "music wasn't for deaf people," she embarked on a quest to prove otherwise; today, she's hired by major music festivals all over the United States to make auditory performances more relatable for the deaf.
To do so, she employs a tireless mixture of hand signs, facial expressions, body movement, and sensibility.
