A video of a sign language interpreter signing along to Stormzy during his headline set at Glastonbury on Friday night has gone viral.
Tara Asher is one of the volunteer sign language interpreters working at the festival this year and was put in charge of signing along for the grime artist’s acclaimed performance to the deaf fans in attendance.
As a specialist in grime music, she was the perfect fit for the role and her amazing interpretation of Stormzy’s smash hit ‘Shut Up’ has earned her a lot of love and praise after the BBC‘s entertainment correspondent, Colin Paterson, shared it on Twitter.
Only 4 British Sign Language interpreters in the UK are specialists in Grime. Tara Asher signed Stormzy’s Glasto set for deaf festival goers.
She rehearsed each song for a day. This is joyous. She LOVES her job. Have a watch please. @BritishSignBSL @deafzone1 #glastonbury19 pic.twitter.com/OkeW9irIoG
