Though Shelby’s video was uploaded back in Sep 2014, it has just now blown up. We have to say — this is impressive! Not only does Shelby sign every word to the anthem from 8 Mile, she does it while nailing each and every beat. She even has Shady’s swagger and mannerisms on lock!
The Austin, Texas woman originally created the video as part of a job application to join the interpreting team at the PBS music program, Austin City Limits, reports the International Business Times. Shelby got the job, naturally. After seeing the video, who wouldn’t want to hire her?
After the video went viral, Shelby was just overwhelmed by all of the attention. She thanked her new fans for their love and support in the comment section of her YouTube channel:
Hey everyone. So sorry it has taken me awhile to comment back, I still am figuring out YouTube haha! – thank you all for all your feedback & support. :) I have been very busy in my personal life but I am going to upload more videos soon. I have a deep love for interpreting music and would love to share more as I am always interpreting music. As always your feedback is wanted (Deaf people/ASL users/ASL Interpreters)! Again, thank you all – I’ll upload more soon.
Needless to say, we can’t wait for more!
We wonder if Beyonce can dance to “Lose Yourself”? Actually, that’s a silly question. Of course she can! In a new #BeyonceAwalysOnBeat meme that hit Twitter and Instagram, Bey’s fans synced up her old dance moves to new songs and found that she always matched up flawlessly!
What do you think about Shelby’s ASL video, HollywoodLifers? Which song do you want to see her do next?
