There are times you want to be able to present your talents but there's not always the resources out there to make that happen for you. I was amazed by this event I went to last week that was hosted by a deaf individual and sponsored by an ASL club called Silent Talent Show. The bowling entertainment center provided the stage and the sound systems. The event gave deaf people and ASL students an opportunity to show their talents. I haven't been to a silent talent show like it before. I have wished so many times to have a talent show where we could perform, possibly win prizes , and be seen in the media, however, in this world there are not many opportunities for deaf people so I was very captivated by the event. I also brought my 7 years old daughter along, whose a coda herself and she performed as well. She signed ABC song along with another hearing girl. Following at the end of the show, my daughter told a story about her new puppy and it was so cute! It was a fantastic ending to the show. There were several ASL students that sung songs in sign languages and deaf people as well! They signed so beautifully and have really drawn me more into the music and I understand it more than I ever could by watching singers with captioning on TV. I have really enjoyed watching everyone showing their talents! I would love for you all to share your talents and send your videos to Deaf Insight! Send your videos or art work to email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will share your talent with our viewers!
