Wu-Tang’s Sign Language Interpreter Helps Hearing Impaired People Protect Their Necks
June 20, 2013

The Wu-Tang Clan performed at the Bonnaroo Festival in Tennessee on Friday, and as usual, they rocked the crowd.

But they also had some help getting their message across in the form of an American Sign Language interpreter who helped hearing impaired people follow what was happening on stage.

Check out the video above, which shows a brief clip of the interpreter doing her thing at the bottom right of the stage.

We recently shared a story about how sign language interpreters help hearing impaired people enjoy the concert experience.

Communicating the words is only part of the job: as you can see in the video above, the interpreter also gets right into the rhythm of the music, basically rapping with her hands and moving to the beat.

The Wu-Tang interpreter's name is Holly, and she was also captured in this great Vine by Amrit Singh, doing her thing while R. Kelly performed:
