17-Year-Old Sings Using Sign Language For Her Deaf Parents And Earns Golden Buzzer

Love needs no translation. You can speak Spanish, French, or Sign Language–no matter the language, the actions of love are spoken loud and clear. A 17-year-old sings using sign language for her deaf parents and earns the golden buzzer on Spain’s Got Talent. 

Martina has had dreams of finding a way to bring the beauty of music to her parents, who are both deaf. Inspired by the French film Coda, Martina took her dream to the stage, and you won’t believe what happened next.

Ever since Martina was a little girl, she’s used her ability to hear and sing to open up a whole new world for her parents. Even though her parents can’t hear Martina’s voice, she found a way to incorporate sign language into her love of singing. 

After she explained to the judges that she was born to deaf parents and how she wanted to find a way to include her parents in her love of music, the judges were in awe of Martina’s heart. She then went on to sing a song in French while signing the lyrics in sign language. 

When her beautiful performance had ended, the audience cheered for her in applause along with her parents, who were cheering her on too!

One viewer who watched the performance was in awe of why Martina signed the song and taught the audience about the hearing impaired. She wrote, “What a beautiful program. The joy, the emotions, and also the teachings that she gave.” 

Another viewer echoed how difficult it is to sign and sing at the same time. She added, “I totally respect her. It's an almost impossible task to sing and translate to hand sign at the same time. She deserved it, hands down.” 

Martina definitely deserved to earn the golden buzzer, not just because of her gifts but because of the love, compassion, and respect she has for her parents. 

What a beautiful soul this sweet, 17-year-old lady has for those who interact with the world differently. Her gift reminds me of first Corinthians. If we do not have love, we have nothing. 

“I may speak in different languages, whether human or even of angels. But if I don't have love, I am only a noisy bell or a ringing cymbal,” 1 Corinthians 31:1.
