When a friend sent me the link to this video, titled "Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp signing Paul McCartney Song", I thought at first, that there was a typo. Normally when I find videos like this, the person posting it usually mistypes "singing" as "signing" and thus dashing hopes of seeing some actually signing a song - especially big-name stars like these two.
Giving it the benefit of doubt, I opened the e-mail link to find the title did ring the truth - this time. Indeed, both Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp do sign - really sign - in a series of three beautiful videos released by Paul McCartney (of Beatles fame for those not in the know) titled "My Valentine".
The series of three music videos give three different performances - one by Natalie Portman alone, one by Johnny Depp himself, and one with both. Each of these three performances is compelling on its own.
It's exciting to see a music video done in sign language - and even more thrilling when it's done by well-known performers such as Portman and Depp.
And now, the videos themselves - enjoy!
