It’s Friday Fancies over here and I’ve got music and singing for you–only this type of singing doesn’t use pitch and tone. This video is a beautiful ASL interpretation of Katy Perry’s song “Firework.” Some people think American Sign Language is just English on the hands, but it is its own language. It has its own structure and grammatical rules. Sometimes there are signs that correspond with English words; often there are not. (That’s what makes being an interpreter so fun and challenging!)
Have you seen ASL before? Even if you don’t know the language, were you able to feel the emotion from the signer? I hope you enjoyed it. Have a great weekend everybody!
