Video Captures Sweet Moment Man Uses Sign Language To Perform Love Song for Deaf Girlfriend


The bible says, “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

A video of a Texas couple displays how love can endure even communication barriers.

Twitter user @originalbree_ shared a video on July 5, 2019, that showed her cousin signing the lyrics of “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri in American Sign Language.

“[M]y cousins girlfriend is deaf and my cousin practices beautiful songs to interpret for her,” Bree wrote.

While the video itself doesn’t give much more context, the love between the young couple is evident as Bree’s cousin pours out his heart to his girlfriend through ASL.

A little child asked the woman filming the emotional moment, “Why are you crying?” The woman responded through her tears, “Nobody has ever done that for me.”

After Bree’s cousin finished showing his precious ASL skills to his girlfriend, he sweetly touched her face, moved his hand to his heart and kissed her hand.

It’s hard to watch and not feel your heart melting at the couple’s apparent love for each other.

Understandably, the heartwarming tweet quickly went viral. Only one week after the tweet was published, it had been viewed over six million times and had been liked over 420,000 times.

Even Christina Perri, the singer of the song, was impressed.

“love this,” she wrote with two emojis: one sobbing face and another with hearts.

Twitter users didn’t hold back on the use of gifs that featured people sobbing uncontrollably.

Other Twitter users replied, expressing how the video had reminded them of their own blessings.

“This is getting me so emotional right now. So neat but also so emotionally moving in the same now.” Twitter user O3S wrote. “We have so many blessings that we take for granted.”

Bree’s cousin’s love for his girlfriend is truly an inspiration.

Liftable, a section of The Western Journal, has reached out to Bree for comment but has not yet received a response. We will update this article if and when we do.
