How Sign A Song is Helping the Deaf Community Enjoy Music in Nashville
Sometimes, the stars perfectly align and a chance meeting turns into a Divinely guided partnership. For Kiley Scott and Kaylee Magro, that moment came when they met in Nashville in 2014. Their serendipitous friendship has brought them together with the shared goal of making music more accessible to the Deaf community. Through their common interests and talents, they started Sign A Song, LLC in 2017.
Sign A Song was created to provide resources to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community in Nashville. Kiley and Kaylee, both with experience in American Sign Language (ASL), use Sign A Song to provide musical interpretations of songs to the Deaf through music videos. Kaylee has a Bachelor's Degree in American Sign Language from Columbia College and Kiley earned her degree in Deaf Studies from Towson University. Between their vast ASL knowledge and their passion for music, Sign A Song is the perfect platform for the two best friends to use their skills to make a difference.
Together, Kaylee and Kiley are working with local video production studio Penumbra Entertainment to create YouTube videos that give the 70,000 Deaf people in Middle Tennessee access to music that they wouldn't ordinarily have. Check out two of their videos below.
