Radio is a platform that brings community together to learn about the world, appreciate each other and of course, music. We take for granted how easy it is to hear the words and not everybody can enjoy a concert the same way. However, deaf people most certainly can enjoy concerts, lyrics, and music just fine, especially if its loud, of course.
Three Days Grace is most definitely loud enough. The Canadian rock group was performing a show in Canada. In attendence were nineteen year old Karri Carberry, and her father Darrin Carberry. The uniqueness about Karri and her father is that she is hearing and he is deaf. Being Deaf, does not mean you can't enjoy a great concert, but you can possibly miss out on the lyrics if their is no interpreter. Well, during the song "Just Like You" Karri signed it for her dad, who was visibly getting into the music with those killer dad moves.
In an interview with Good Morning America, Karri Carberry expresses her gratitude for all the love it has received.
"I feel absolutely shocked and amazed at all of the views and responses we have been getting! It’s an amazing feeling and we’re both very happy that everyone around the world is enjoying it so much."
This reminds me of the time hip hop artist, Waka Flaka started dancing next to the sign language interpreter.
I also discovered this video of 1-800 artist, Logic, freestyling with the interpreter.
