Too good to handle!
Shelby Mitchusson uploaded a video of herself interpreting Eminem’s Oscar winning pump-up song, “Lose Yourself,” to YouTube last year as part of her application to work with the ASL (American Sign Language) team at Austin City Limits. When one Reddit user recently discovered her seriously amazing (and moving) ASL interpretation skills, he shared the video on Reddit and the it quickly went viral, raking up over 500,000 views. And when you see it, you’ll totally understand why!
Shelby’s angsty facial expressions on top of her beautiful signing and swaying perfectly to the beat all add up to a seriously powerful cover of this Eminem classic that you won’t be able to stop watching.

Shelby was super surprised when her vid went viral and took to YouTube to thank her newfound fans, saying, “I have a deep love for interpreting music and would love to share more as I am always interpreting music. As always, your feedback is wanted (deaf people/ASL users/ASL Interpreters)! Again, thank you all — I’ll upload more soon!”
Yassss! We’re so glad that Shelby and American Sign Language are getting recognized in such an awesome way, and we’re super excited to see what amazing sign language vids Shelby has in store for us next.
