Nicole Cortez posted the following video, on YouTube, of her father signing the song “I Loved Her First” by the band Heartland.
Although Cortez is not deaf, she is a sign language interpreter. Her father, did not know how to sign prior to the learning how to sign this song.
He decided to learn the song because to him, this was his way of showing how much his daughter meant to him.
As Nicole stated on YouTube “This meant the world to me. He said it took him the entire year I was engaged to learn how to sign this song.”
