I wanted to take an opportunity to showcase my favourite talent from the deaf community. I follow a number of different people, however I’ve picked my top few for different reasons, and I think you should take a look at their work.
Deafie Blogger, AKA ‘E’, blogs about so many different deaf related topics. One of my favourite things she has worked on is the campaign to get subtitles in the cinemas. She’s worked incredibly hard on this, and I think the more people who get behind her, the better! She’s also recently won a Signature award for all of her efforts in the deaf community, and she fully deserves the credit!
I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Chris a few times, and I’ve seen his work with my own eyes. Chris is a deaf dancer, and his style of dancing is really unique and fresh. He’s probably one of the coolest people I’ve ever met too! Pumped with lots of swag and amazing moves – he’s made it onto The Greatest Dancer, which was incredible!
Where do I start with Fletch? I’ve known about her for years, but finally met her for the first time when we filmed our Sign2Sing video. Her music videos in Sign Language are incredible, she can take music and bring a whole new dimension to it with her signing. I’ve got to know her personally and some of the work that she’s put into her career really inspires me. Especially as I do a lot of signed songs too.
