This 'Let It Go' Music Video With a Twist Is the Mid-Winter Magic You Need Right Now


An all-deaf cast and crew created this beautiful American Sign Language version of the popular song “Let It Go” from the Disney movie Frozen.

Amber Zion, an actress in Los Angeles, and Dr. Jason Listman, a professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York, sign the words to the song in this dramatic, striking music video.

The project was partially sponsored by the National Technical Institute for the Deaf and the Rochester Institute of Technology, according to the Rochester Institute of Technology website.

Since it was posted online in late January, the video has accumulated more than 100,000 views.
