Two students from Lexington School for the Deaf, Sophie Ariza (3rd grade) and Alex Guzman (4th grade), were selected to appear in a special ASL version of Kelly Clarkson's new song, "I Dare You." The ASL version of the Atlantic Records release was created in collaboration with Deaf West Theatre and filmed in participants' homes due to the COVID-19 quarantine. Video participants included many famous Deaf actors - Nyle DiMarco (Dancing with the Stars, America's Next Top Model), Millicent Simmonds (Wonderstruck, A Quiet Place), Angel Theory (The Walking Dead), Sandra Mae Frank (Spring Awakening) and Rosa Lee Timm (Deaf performance artist). Although Sophie and Alex didn't get a chance to meet the famous actors in person, they were thrilled to be included among such a stellar video cast. Lexington School for the Deaf received special thanks in the video's liner notes for the school's assistance in recruiting students for the project.
