Be Encouraged to take a Chance

Chance The Rapper is not only a great artist, but it turns out he is a great quality guy as well. He will be providing professional sign language interpretation for hearing impaired fans on the remaining dates of his Be Encouraged Tour.


The hip hop legend has invited American Sign Language (ASL) expert Matt Maxey to translate his song lyrics whilst he performs live on stage. At one of his shows recently in Florida, Chance (real name Chancelor Bennett) gave out 50 free front row tickets to hearing impaired fans, whilst Maxey and two other interpreters translated on stage.

It is slowly becoming more common for artists to provide their own translators at gigs, which would save fans lots of time, money and effort, as many fans have to bring their own translators to gigs. Props to Chance the Rapper for always winning our hearts!
