With the video for Adele’s single “Hello” receiving over 238 million views on YouTube since its Oct. 22 release, it has broken a number of records. Unsurprisingly, it has also already become a popular subject for many covers and parodies. But this sign language interpretation stands out from the rest.
The version was performed by American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter Molly Lou Bartholomew and is a stunning example of the emotion that can be conveyed through signing. Bartholomew’s YouTube channel is full of sign language interpretations of popular songs such as Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” and John Legend’s “All of Me”
“I have dedicated this channel to my number one passion in life, artistic/theatrical interpreting in ASL,” she writes on YouTube. “I have worked very hard on keeping these songs as conceptually accurate as possible.”
