Maine Deaf Interpreter Does Quarantine Karaoke of ‘Lose Yourself’
Quarantine Karaoke, the viral Facebook group created right here in Maine, has got everyone singing their favorite songs for the world to see. Or in this case, signing.
Dr. Regan Thibodeau is the certified deaf interpreter who has been conveying vital information given in the Maine CDC press conference to the deaf. The fact that Regan herself has been deaf all her life, doesn't mean she can't be a part of Quarantine Karaoke as she has demonstrated with her Facebook Live videos where she was taking requests.
Watching a popular song performed in American Sign Language by Regan is amazing. The feeling and expression you see in the press conferences caries over to music, even though she can't hear it.
Take this example of her performing Eminem's "Lose Yourself." She said in a comment, "I love Eminem but I never studied to do it in ASL." Well, she nailed it.
She did a handful of songs on her Facebook page like, John Lennon's "Imagine."
And here's Bon Jovi's "Wanted Dead or Alive."
Her quarantine karaoke videos are getting thousands of shares on Facebook.
I had a fascinating conversation with Regan earlier this week about what she does for the Maine CDC press conference. If you missed it, hit the button below to learn more about Regan Thibodeau.
