A sign language interpreter stole the show when she appeared at a concert alongside the US rapper Twista.

Twista, who once held the Guinness World Records' "fastest rapper of all time", was performing in Charlotte, North Carolina.

He was joined by American sign language interpreter Amber Galloway Gallego on stage.

Thousands praised on Twitter after a video was posted by Andrew Barber, who founded Chicago-based music and media company Fake Shore Drive.

He wrote: "Twista's sign language interpreter hitting every single word he fires off on stage is 10/10 content.

"She needs a Guinness World Record."

Guinness World Records even shared his tweet saying: "Wow, Amber Galloway Gallego is one speedy signer!

"We do have a category for the fastest time to spell the American sign language alphabet - and we'd certainly welcome an application."
