A family that signs together, stays together. This is so sweet.




ALL: Hi!

MIKE: My name is Mike. My sign name is this.

SARAH: I'm Sarah.

FAITH: I'm Faith.

SOPHIE: I'm Sophie.

MIKE: I'm deaf and they're not. Why are we here?

FAITH: To talk about our ASL music videos.

('Ice Ice Baby' by Vanilla Ice)

# Stop

# Collaborate and listen

# Ice is back with my brand new invention

# Something grabs a hold of me tightly

# Flow like a harpoon daily and nightly

# Will it ever stop? Yo, I don't know

# Turn off the lights and I'll glow

# To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal

# Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle. #

MIKE: Yeah. Where did the idea come from? Well, I love music and I like to watch a variety of videos on YouTube. And then one day, it hit me, "Why not make my own videos?"

('I Believe I Can Fly' by R Kelly)

# I believe I can soar

# I see me running through that open door

# I believe I can fly #

('Livin' On A Prayer' by Bon Jovi)

# ...what we've got

# It doesn't make a difference if we make it or not

# We've got each other and that's a lot for love

# We'll give it a shot

# Woah, we're half way there

# Woah...

# MIKE: That was back in 2012. At first, it was just me in the videos, signing to the songs, and I didn't find it inspiring. So, I thought more about it and I suddenly thought, "Why not have my daughters in the videos?" ('Shake It Off' by Taylor Swift) # 'Cause the players gonna

# play, play, play, play, play

# And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate

# Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake

# I shake it off, I shake it off

# Heart-breakers gonna break, break... #

('Motorbreath' by Metallica)

# I can't take it any other way

# Motorbreath

# The sign of living fast

# It is going to take

# Your breath away #

(electric guitar solo) ('No' by Meghan Trainor')

# Oh my name is no

# My sign is no

# My number is no

# You need to let it go

# You need to let it go

# Need to let it go

# Ah to the ah to the, no, no, no!

MIKE: I started to notice that having them in the videos made it more cool, fun, interesting, and uplifting.

('Black Or White' by Michael Jackson)

# Protection for gangs, clubs and nations

# Causing grief in human relations

# It's a turf war on a global scale

# I'd rather hear both sides of the tale

# See, it's not about races

# Just places

# Faces

# Where your blood comes from

# Is where your space is

# I've seen the bright get duller

# I'm not going to spend my life being a color

# Don't tell me you agree with me

# When I saw you kicking dirt in my eye

# But if you're thinkin' about my baby #

It don't matter if you're black or white #

('Uptown Funk' by Mark Ronson)

# Don't believe me just watch

# Don't believe me just watch

# Don't believe me just watch

# Don't believe me just watch

# Hey, hey, hey, oh!

# Stop! Wait a minute

# Fill my cup put some liquor in it #

(electric guitar solo)

MIKE: That's how we started. There are more than 80 videos on our YouTube channel, and we plan to keep making them from time to time.

SARAH: We love signing, because it's fun and cool to learn.

MIKE: Yeah.

SOPHIE: We love to share with you all.

MIKE: Please check out our YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/user/hiddenhub We hope you enjoy watching them as much as we enjoy making them. Thanks for watching.

ALL: Bye!
