Signing The Song

Incredible news!! I’ll be flying to Florida with William Martinez’s “SIGNING THE SONG”! We’ll be performing the show in front of close to 4000 people as part of a massive teacher conference. I’ve had the immense pleasure of being the music producer and doing all the arrangements and orchestrations for the show! This poignant and truly inspirational story features a lot of songs you know and will be singing and signing to, along-side new ones written specifically for this show, including a song I wrote for the closing number. All performed by singer extraordinaire – William Martinez. It’s an unforgettable night!

I’m excited to share with you the closing song for the show, titled “Standing Strong”.

About the Show

Through American Sign IMG_1526Language paired with singing, “SIGNING THE SONG” shares the story of a boy who grew up in a deaf household with little exposure to TV, Radio, or Movies. Because of his incredible 8th grade music teacher and the love and support of his parents, he came out of his silent world and discovered his voice through music. Watch how ASL and song lyrics meld together into a beautiful unique art form. This show celebrates the incredible impact educators and parents have on each child’s life… regardless of their struggles.

What makes the Lakeland, Florida performance exceptional is the fact that the producers of the show will actually be flying out William’s 8th-grade choir teacher, Ms. Norma Freeman, and he’ll get to perform this show for her! It’ll be the first time in 25 years they will get to see each other, and more importantly the first time he gets to personally thank her for the way that she changed his life.

Want to see this once in a lifetime event? Join us on August 7th, 2015 at 11 am at Victory Church in Lakeland, Florida. A truly spectacular venue!
