LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - As an end-of-school project, deaf education students at Lufkin High School got creative.
They put a spin on the popular Black Eyed Peas song, "Where is the Love," by completely translating the tune into American Sign Language.
"Well, the main signers are students at Lufkin High School deaf ed and myself," said Justin Kirk, who worked with the LHS students, "There are scenes with faculty and staff as well. The video was something we started doing with the kids every year for the seniors."
Kirk said at the end of each school year, seniors have the opportunity to edit, direct, and translate a song for their final farewell to high school. He added that they hope others are inspired by the great message behind the song and that he's proud of their hard work in inspiring others.
"I will be moving to Houston, and I wanted to make an ASL video with my kids, so I led the project, but the kids were able to input their interpretations of the song, where they wanted to be for background, and even directing."
