Tears Flow As Drag Queen Performs With Sign Language

Before this moment these two people had never met but their connection was instant and it will warm your heart.

It was a typical Saturday night for performer Vivian LeCher until this moment during a draq queen bingo event:

LeCher signed the words as she lip synced to Kesha's song "Praying", directing the performance to the deaf woman seated right in front. At one point you could see tears start streaming down the woman's face. Looking around the room you could see others crying and smiling along.

LeCher tells me the two ladies had only met this evening during the bingo fundraiser in Natrona Heights, PA at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 894. I caught up with her following the performance to talk about what we had all just witnessed.

When asked about her inspiration for this and other acts, Vivian says it's all about love and compassion.
