Hearing university students in Iwate Prefecture practice signed songs for concert

"We hope to encourage those who survived in the earthquake-stricken area." The sign language circle members practice signed songs with a songwriter Hikaru (right) who plays guitar. 


Seven of 50 members of the sign language circle at Iwate Prefectural University will show their performance on the stage of the concert, which will be held in the Yamada-town, Iwate Prefecture on November 17.

They have practiced by instruction of the Deaf people and a sign language circle in Morioka-shi in the prefecture since July in response to the thought of a revival singer-songwriter Hikaru. She wanted to send those who suffered from the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake her song  in sign language."

The students will sing three songs made by Hikari by sign language.
