A sign language interpreter was caught on camera putting up an amazing performance at a heavy metal concert as she was signing the music to deaf fans with passion.
Lindsay Rothschild-Cross went viral after the videos of her signing received nearly as much attention on social media as the concert itself.
“I grew up with Guns N’ Roses, and Alice in Chains and Iron Maiden and things like that,” the high school teacher and sign language interpreter admitted in an interview with Good Morning America.
“I’ve never actually interpreted for death metal though. This is the first time.”
Despite her lack of experience, Lindsay performed as she was on fire thanks to her passion for signing.
In the footage shared on social media, the teacher was seen interpreting ‘Ruin’ by the Lamb of God which contains diehard lines such as: “I will show you all that I have mastered – Fear – Pain – Hatred – Power – This is the art of ruin.”
“At first, I was honestly very nervous because I had never interpreted metal,” Lindsay added. “The key is you have to impersonate the singer. The meaning of the song is a lot of anger. I just took on that feeling of someone that has hurt me before.”
Following the woman’s remarkable performance, D. Randall Blythe, the Lamb of God’s singer, praised the interpreter in an interview with ABC News and said:
“I am always extremely pleased when I see sign language interpreters at our shows, and the show in Austin was no exception …
“That day, there were several interpreters taking turns — they were all working hard and doing a great job, but Lindsay’s interpretation of our performance stood out to me enough that I hopped down off the stage and sang beside her for a bit.
“Lindsay and the other interpreters became a part of that massive exchange of energy that occurs at our shows, just as important as any of us performing on stage. I hope to see her at a show in the future!”
