Chance The Rapper is not only a great artist, but it turns out he is just a great guy. He will be providing professional sign language interpretation for
hearing impaired fans on the remaining dates of his ‘Be Encouraged’ Tour.
The hip hop legend has invited American Sign Language (ASL) expert Matt
Maxey to translate his song lyrics whilst he performs live on stage. At one of his
shows recently in Florida, Chance (real name Chancelor Bennett) gave out 50
free front row tickets to hearing impaired fans, whilst Maxey and two other
interpreters translated on stage.
It is slowly becoming more common for artists to provide their own translators at gigs, which would save fans lots of time, money and effort, as many fans have to bring their own translators to gigs. Props to Chance the Rapper for always winning our hearts!
