Watch how sign language innovators are bringing music to the deaf.

Amber Galloway Gallego is one of them. Interpreters like her can be spotted not only translating lyrics into ASL, but mirroring the emotions and physical style of the performers — and the result is as captivating as the original musical acts themselves. Amber has a knack for hip-hop artists, and a video of her signing along Kendrick Lamar’s Lollapalooza performance went viral.
