One little girl’s sign language display for her parents at the thoughtful daughter’s musical show has become a massive hit on YouTube this week after her mother uploaded it to the video sharing site. With a cute sway and nimble fingers, the child was able to use sign language to let her parents (who are both deaf) in on the fun while still dancing away to the beat. Mashable reveals the news this Friday, Dec. 13, 2013.
The little girl in question, Clair Koch, used sign language to bring her parents the joy that holiday music can instill in everyone this winter season. Only a five-year-old coming from Clearwater, Florida, the child was excited to participate in her local school’s Christmas pageant, and no doubt looking forward to having her family in attendance.
However, because Koch knew that her two parents were deaf and wouldn’t be able to “hear” the lovely Christmas music noticeably, the little girl’s sign language demonstration was done so they, too, could join in on the translated-to-ASL enjoyment.
After the thoughtful child’s mother (Lori Koch) decided to upload the video of her daughter performing American Sign Language during the Christmas pageant to YouTube, it wasn’t her peers’ dance moves making waves, but her efforts that made the video go absolutely viral in just a few days.
Having been born and raised by two deaf parents, Lori added that her daughter’s very first language was in fact American Sign Language, so this is one multitalented little girl who is well aware at making everyone feel included. The great video clip can be seen attached to this article. Did you enjoy the footage as much as others this week?
