Claire Koch's Parents Couldn't Hear Her Kindergarten Concert. So She Performed It In Sign Language.

The only thing cuter than kindergartners singing in their holiday concert is a KODA (kid of deaf adults) signing the show -- so that her parents can fully enjoy it.

Five-year-old Claire Koch, went into full ASL-mode for classics like "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and new additions to the holiday canon such as "Santa is his Name-O."

Mom, Lori Koch, told Yahoo that she can read lips, but her husband only signs. And neither parent expected to see such a beautiful gesture from their daughter. Yet even off-the-cuff, Claire's interpreting skills seemed to outshine someone else this week.
