Treshelle Edmond responds back to TSG on Super Bowl pick!

Yesterday, we wrote about how beautiful, and talented Treshelle Edmond was selected to represent NAD and PepsiCo to translate the National Anthem and “America the Beautiful”  in ASL at the upcoming Super Bowl XLIX (49) on February 1st, 2015. We decided to contact her via Twitter and ask her what her thoughts are about being selected:

@SilentGrapevine I am so excited to represent NAD and perform alongside @idinamenzel & @johnlegend at the SuperBowl.
