On Labor Day, YouTube magician and all-around nice guy, Stuart Edge, teamed up with a few friends to perform a street show in Salt Lake City.
But their plan wasn’t to just sing and play music to put a few smiles on random passers-by faces. No, they had something much bigger in mind. After searching for a total stranger to join their band, they found a man down on his luck. The band invited him to play along with them, promising him that he could keep half their tips. He agreed, even saying he needed it since he had felt so depressed lately, as he had been living on the streets for a while.
They then presented a nice surprise for the man at the end of their beautiful performance.

It warms my heart to see something like this. It’s good to know there are people out there that just want to bring some positivity to the world by helping others.
Most people believe that the deaf can’t appreciate music, much less make music. However, those people are about to be proved wrong.
This amazing percussion band from Singapore called ExtraOrdinary Horizons is made up of young musicians and singers, all of which are deaf. Watch as they lay down some serious beats in their music video below, called Deaf, Loud and Proud. I had no idea this was even possible!

ExtraOrdinary Horizons was founded by singer Lily Goh, who was a deaf participant in the very first season of Singapore Idol, back in 2004. The aim of ExtraOrdinary is to bring about awareness and knowledge about the deaf community in Singapore to the rest of the world, and help them better integrate into mainstream society and to be accepted for who they are.
