This is a music video created out of love for Alicia Keys’ hit song “Girl on Fire.” Treshelle has always loved Alicia Keys’ music and this song resonated with her when she was at a point in her life that led her to believe that she was incapable of anything due to domestic violence with a person close to her. As a proud deaf black woman, Treshelle hopes through her artistic expression, this song will continue to inspire more native American Sign Language users to discover their fire inside.
The National Association of the Deaf (NAD) and PepsiCo announced on January 16 that actress Treshelle Edmond has been selected to bring the beauty of American Sign Language (ASL) to one of the most popular sports and entertainment events of the year – Super Bowl Sunday.
PepsiCo’s sponsorship of Treshelle Edmond as the ASL artist at Super Bowl XLIX is the latest effort in an on-going partnership with the NAD to advance awareness of ASL and promote inclusivity in media and pop culture.
