Sign language students put unique twist on ‘American Idol’

“High school students put their own twist on the show American Idol in Vancouver Thursday evening.

American Sign Language students competed for the title of Signing Idol  in front of a large crowd at Heritage High School. It was a unique show that brought the deaf community together for a good cause.

This is the eighth year ‘Signing Idol’ was held at the high school, and organizers said it was the first time they sold out. More than 500 people packed into the school’s theater to watch the performances. Students took to the stage, where they signed the words to some of their favorite songs.”
