I'm sure you'll be just as amazed if not puzzled after finding out that Sean Forbes is deaf. When I heard his segment on NPR, I couldn't stop wondering how he was able to do it. He states that he isn't hard of hearing; if that was the case, he'd still be able to hear his tone of voice which would make creating music much more possible. Personally, it's not the music that I've come to admire, but his ability to overcome the most obvious obstacle that could've easily kept him from fulfilling his dream. Not only that, his positive attitude through it all is definitely praiseworthy.
Watching this makes me want to retake ASL all together. Definitely recommend for people to experience.
