With a certain interpreter causing a lot of controversy this week, it's nice to see one that definitely has it together (and is totally adorable to boot).

A video of 5-year-old Claire Koch signing the words to the songs at her holiday concert is getting lots of attention on YouTube.

As her classmates show off some cute holiday choreography to classics like "Jingle Bells" and "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," Koch uses sign language to illustrate the lyrics.

The kindergartner's mom, Lori, told Yahoo News that her daughter's actions came as a surprise to her and her husband, who are both deaf.

The video entitled "KODA in Kindergarten Holiday Concert" (KODA stands for "kid of deaf adult") has already reached over 400,000 views.
