At a recent rap performance in Charlotte, NC, all eyes were on the sign language interpreter, NBC News reports.
Twista was once Guinness World Records’ “fastest rapper of all time,” and at his performance last weekend he was joined on stage by American Sign Language interpreter Amber Galloway Gallego.
During the performance Twista turned toward Galloway Gallego and the audience went wild. Later Twista commended Galloway Gallego on Twitter, saying “She’s the real MVP for keeping up wit me.”
Galloway Gallego is already famous for her interpretations, performing with other artists like Lady Gaga, the Black Keys and Cher. In 2013, Galloway Gallego went viral for her performance with Kendrick Lamar at Lollapalooza, and in 2014, Vibe magazine called her the “Jay-Z of Hip-Hop Sign Language.”
She has used her fame to advocate for the deaf and hard-of-hearing community, calling for more inclusion, especially in the arts.
