Lose Yourself: ASL Version Of Eminem’s Song By Shelby Mitchusson Goes Viral [Video]

An ASL version of Eminem’s song “Lose Yourself” has the internet stirring after going viral earlier this week.

According to Newsmax, a young woman named Shelby Mitchusson uploaded the video to YouTube in September of last year. However, it just started making the rounds on the internet after a user uploaded it to the link-sharing website Reddit.

“Hey everyone. So sorry it has taken me awhile to comment back, I still am figuring out YouTube haha! – thank you all for all your feedback & support. ? I have been very busy in my personal life but I am going to upload more videos soon,” she wrote in the comments section of the video. “I have a deep love for interpreting music and would love to share more as I am always interpreting music. As always your feedback is wanted (Deaf people/ASL users/ASL Interpreters)! Again, thank you all – I’ll upload more soon.”

Shelby, from Austin, Texas, originally created the video as part of a job application to join the interpreting team at the PBS music program Austin City Limits, the International Business Times reports. Of course, she nailed it and landed the job!

“Actually it was my interpreter application submission video to work with an amazing interpreting team at Austin City Limits 2014,” she wrote. “I got the gig and still my heart flutters with how well our team worked together equally and the fact that finally these companies are opening their eyes to the true hidden gem talent of Deaf performers & Deaf people signing music– which we NEED to see more of!”

“Again, thank you all it truly means a lot to me [because] this song hits home to my heart in so many ways and I hope that my passion and love are expressed through my work,” Mitchusson continued. “I always work from my heart.”

So far, the video that shows Shelby doing her ASL rendition of “Lose Yourself” has garnered more than 490,000 views, and the numbers are still climbing.
