Finnish deaf rapper Signmark is preparing for his second performance in Hong Kong next month. He was born deaf and says:
My family is deaf, but my grandparents are hearing, so th
ey didn’t know any sign language. I watched as my grandfather was playing the piano and my grandmother was singing. I began lip-reading what she was singing and then I started signing it to my parents. They got involved and realized that music is something that connects people. “Then I translated hundreds of songs into sign language; different artists’ songs, for instance those of Bon Jovi, Michael Jackson and Metallica.
The South China Morning Post takes a look at the remarkable artist here.
