Rihanna’s return was a major talking point stemming from Super Bowl 57, with the Barbadian singer putting on a remarkable performance during the halftime show.
Yet it’s Justina Miles, a deaf sign language interpreter, who stole the show with her energetic translations of “All of the Lights” and “B*tch Better Have My Money.”
And here is a longer version of Justina Miles performance.
Justina, who also provided signage for “Lift Every Voice And Sing” by Sheryl Lee Ralph, has gone viral on social media.
She said she wanted her work on that particular song to empower other black people who are deaf.
“I feel that is truly lifting every voice, even my voice,” she said.
A video featuring her performance to Riri’s “B*tch Better Have My Money” (shown below) is fast nearing 24 million views on TikTok.
Who Is Justina Miles?
Miles hails from Philadelphia and is a 20-year-old sign language performer who became the first deaf woman to perform during the Super Bowl halftime show. She must have been disappointed with the results as the Eagles lost to the Chiefs after appearing to have the game in the bag. But she should be very happy with the reception she’s gotten since her stellar act.
This isn’t the first time she’s gone viral either, having appeared in a 2020 TikTok video in which she perform’s Lil’ Kim’s “Crush on You.”
Miles is also an athlete who won silver at the Deaflympics in 2021/22. She’s now studying to become a nurse and attends Bowie State University in Maryland, where she’s a cheerleader too.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
