Sign language is a vital form of communication with subtleties many may not spot.

Not only does a sign language interpreter have to know the signs, but they also have to know the way to sign in order to properly convey tone and subtext as happens in verbal communication.

American Sign Language interpreter Amber Galloway Gallego has that down to an art.


Her incredible skills were on full display interpreting the rapper Twista at a recent concert.

Galloway Gallego wasn't fazed by the speed of Twista's rhymes, effortlessly keeping up with a groove all her own—to the point it seems like she wrote the lyrics herself.

It wasn't long before Twista himself gave her props.
