Multi-platinum-selling singer/songwriter Calum Scott has unveiled a new visual for his single Biblical, an American Sign Language (ASL) version of the track created in collaboration with the Tony Award®-winning Deaf West Theatre.
The stunning black-and-white visual is a powerful moment from the U.K.-based artist and several performers, directed by Giovanni Maucere. Capturing the raw emotion of the track, the clip focuses in on each actor as they present an impassioned performance of the track, which is an ode to unconditional life.
“It is incredibly important for me to reach as many people as possible with my music so when the opportunity came about to work with the Deaf community, I was so excited to collaborate,” says Scott. “I feel immense gratitude to know that my music continues to transcend language across the world and not only did I want to have a sign language version of the song but I also wanted learn how to sign it myself to connect directly with my fans in this often underrepresented community.”
"It is my honor to collaborate with Deaf West Theatre and Calum Scott,” Maucere adds. “I knew that we could bring a new facet to the song by expressing the beauty and honesty of the song through ASL. Deaf people experience music in various ways, and in this video ASL is layered with camera movement and lighting in a way that we can begin to feel Calum’s story. This music video is a true expression of honest and accessible storytelling.”
