One Direction Songs To Be Translated In Sign Language For Deaf Awareness Week
One Direction’s songs are set to get a makeover next month when they will be translated into sign language during Deaf Awareness Week in Norfolk.
The ‘Kiss You’ hitmakers, who are currently on their ‘Take Me Home’ world tour, have legions of fans around the world, but now their fans in the deaf community will be able to enjoy their music and lyrics when they are translated into sign language in May.

The Norfolk County Council’s Sensory Support Unit will be hosting the event on May 8 where members of the public will be invited to perform their songs in British Sign Language while they will also be given the opportunity to learn more about the deasf community.
No doubt songs will include some of the band’s biggest hits including ‘What Makes You Beautiful,’ ‘Little Things,’ ‘One Thing’ and ‘Live While We’re Young.’
In addition to the One Direction tracks, local groups ‘V Sign’ and ‘Signing Angels’ will be performing a series of songs in both the classical and pop genre using British Sign Language.
Meanwhile, 1D kicked off the European leg of their world tour on Monday night in Paris where they played at the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy.
1D’s previous songs may be among those chosen for the sign language translation but it appears fans will be treated to new music soon as Louis Tomlinson recently confirmed they are working on their third studio album.
Louis told the Daily Star: “We’ve already started recording the album, we started about a month ago.
“We’ve been writing and recording it while on tour. We are really happy with it.” “We don’t want to rush it but it will be out for Christmas.”
