Por esto Te Amo in Sign Language

Singer-songwriter Gerard Flores released his most recent single “Por Eso Te Amo” (That’s Why I Love You), a romantic ballad complemented by the classical sounds of the piano and the guitar, and a story of a pure love that transcends the barriers of time, distance, culture and language. The music video expanded its parameters to include those with hearing loss. “Gerard felt it was important that his new song be all inclusive. With 3.6% of the U.S. population, roughly 11 million individuals, considering themselves deaf or hard of hearing, Gerard’s goal was to share his art with all, and thus incorporated the written lyrics and sign language to his music video,” according to a statement.
