This Woman Signs Adele's 'Hello' And When The Music Stops, The Raw Emotion Takes Off


You've probably heard multiple interpretations — and even some spoofs — of Adele's latest song, "Hello," on Vine, Facebook, and other social media platforms. 

Take, for instance, Ellen DeGeneres' version of the song, where she and Adele try having a phone conversation but things go awry. 

But in one beautiful interpretation worth watching, Molly Lou Bartholomew, a Professional Nationally Certified ASL Interpreter, does an ASL interpretation of the song — sans music.


"The use of this song is for educational purposes," Bartholomew captions her video.

Since it was uploaded, the video has received some major attention. Nylon calls it the most beautiful cover of "Hello" made to date, and Buzzfeed describes the Adele interpretation as "heartbreakingly gorgeous."

All of which we can't argue with.

Be sure to watch the full video below and prepare yourself — it's truly special.

Bartholomew's other videos include ASL interpretations of "Ridin' Solo" by Jason Derulo, "Fire" by Gavin DeGraw, and the ever-emotional track "All Of Me" by John Legend.
