Play video In recent years, a lot of large-scale events, including concerts and speeches, have added American Sign Language interpreters to help those with hearing impairments have a better experience. The work that they do is intricate and heartfelt, and it also looks really cool. So it’s perhaps no wonder that the work of ASL interpretation has birthed a few stars. Take Lydia Callis, Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s interpreter at the time of Superstorm Sandy a year ago.She was heralded for her enthusiasm and ability. In that vibrant spirit comes Amber Galloway-Gallego , who can teach you a thing or two about rap lyrics, or at least how they look in ASL. She has over 300 concerts under her belt, and it’s perhaps this experience that gives her authority to interpret phrases from the mildly racy to the outright smutty. And people love it. Vines and Instagram videos made their way around the Web these past two weekends, as Galloway-Gallego was interpreting for a Kendrick Lamar performance at the Austin City Limits Music Festival. People on Twitter wrote things like, “Obsessed with the sign language interpreter for Kendrick Lamar” and “Best show of the weekend.” So next concert you’re at, keep a lookout for live music’s newest star.
