Artist Christine Sun Kim Becomes the First Deaf Asian American to Sign the National Anthem at the Super Bowl
American Sign Language (ASL) sound artist Christine Sun Kim became the first deaf Asian American to sign the national anthem at the Super Bowl alongside singer Demi Lovato.
The 39-year-old Berlin-based American artist was picked by the National Association of the Deaf (NAD), the oldest civil rights organization in America founded in 1880, as a representative of the signing community at the Super Bowl.
Singer and actor Kris Wu, a former member of hugely popular South Korean-Chinese group EXO, was recently tapped to sing for this year’s Super Bowl Live in Minnesota.
Wu, whose performance is scheduled during the 10-day live concerts leading up to the game, was also named Super Bowl LII Ambassador for NFL China by the National Football League.
