ASL Music Video Interpretations

http://news.yahoo.com/video/us-15749625/23928119

Allyson Townsend, a 22-year-old teacher from Mesquite, Texas, has recently gained YouTube fame for her sign-language music video interpretations. Townsend was inspired by her deaf friend, who once asked her "How do you know which words to sing at which point and how do you know how long to say the word?" In response, Townsend created a very unique music video for her curious friend - an ASL take on Sixpence None the Richer's "Kiss Me." Townsend has since covered a number of contemporary songs, and has gained an impressive following. With over three million video views (and growing), the young teacher is praised by her deaf and hard-of-hearing fans who, with the help of Townsend's expressive music videos, feel that they can now appreciate music.
