10 Music Videos Featuring American Sign Language

While music itself is traditionally an art for listening, YouTube and worldwide video accessibility has changed the game. With the help of translators, performers, and Deaf performers, music can now be seen. Using sign language and body movement, songs are becoming a visual art for everyone to feel. Here are ten music videos that can not only be heard, but seen:

1. American Authors - Pride (Official Music Video)*

2. Phillip Phillips - Home (Cover by Deaf Film Camp at CM7)*

3. Carly Rae Jepson - Call Me Maybe (Cover by D-PAN)*

4. White Stripes - We're Going to be Friends (Cover by D-PAN)*

5. Bruno Mars - The Lazy Song (Cover by the cast of Deaf West's "Spring Awakening")*

6. Sia - Soon We'll Be Found (Official Music Video)

7. Paul McCartney - My Valentine (Official Music Video)

8. The Ready Set - Give Me Your Hand (Best Song Ever) (Official Lyric Video)

9. Pharrell - Happy (Cover by Deaf Film Camp at CM7)*

10. Nicki Minaj - Anaconda (Cover by Amber Galloway Gallego)

All of the videos marked with an asterisk (*) feature Deaf performers. Now that we know the chill-inducing spectacular that is signed music, we need to tell more musicians to follow in the footsteps of American Authors, demanding that they feature #deaftalent in their official music videos.
