+Shelby Mitchusson​ is amazing! I could see her as a finalist on +America's Got Talent​, if not winning it all.
Thank you everyone for the positive energy and watching my video. Sorry I do not spend much time commenting on youtube as there are so many comments it is difficult for me to keep up. I will try to address some of the questions here & also try not to type yall a novel haha.

I started learning ASL just to communicate with deaf people. My brothers childhood friend is a CODA (Child of deaf adult). When his parents met my family, I was immediately interested & wanted to communicate with them in their language rather than writing on paper. Since then I have been a forever student of ASL. I originally did not want to become an interpreter but it worked out later that I ended up becoming interested in the interpreting process so I majored in Interpreting and deaf language & cultural studies. I still consider myself a student for life :)

In regards to my facial expressions - I am using NMM (Non-Manual-Markers) - which are an essential grammatical function for ASL. I realize I mouth the song occasionally, then I drop it and continue my NMM. I did not intentionally do this - I just did it in the moment and being so passionate about the message this song brings. NMM are grammatical functions to illustrate the level of the word you are using as well as other very important grammatical functions. For example the words: beautiful, pretty, gorgeous, etc - all essentially mean a good looking person. However, in english we differentiate and show the level of the word by picking a different word for example, we'd say: oh she's pretty or oh she's beautiful. Meaning the pretty person is good looking but the gorgeous person is out of this world in beauty. In ASL, you would use different NMM to show how beautiful/what level of beauty the person is. NMM also function for different types of questions. For example: questions with a YES/NO response - your eyebrows will be up. For questions with answers that are longer/detailed etc, your eyebrows are down. There are also signs in ASL that have a specific NMM that always goes along with the sign.

I could honestly go on forever about NMM and every function they serve but I'll leave my comment at this and let yall learn from Deaf people (best way to learn ASL), ASL class, ASL linguistics course, or an Interpreter Training program. I hope some of what I said has helped and I will continue to answer as many questions the best I can.
