    Ingrid Michaelson released her video for "Hell No" back in April, filmed entirely on Snapchat with insane filters galore and we loved it. But apparently it wasn't enough, as she was inspired to film a brand new video for the same song last month.

    The indie pop singer-songwriter was so impressed by The Deaf West theater company's Spring Awakening after seeing the cast perform at the Tony Awards in June, that she just had to make a fresh, new video with them.

    "I was so moved by Deaf West's performance at The Tonys this year that I reached out to Deaf West artistic director, DJ Kurs, and Tony-nominated director, Michael Arden, with an idea to incorporate their incredible work with American Sign Language into a music video," Michaelson told PEOPLE. In the video, the actors breathe new life into the song by translating the lyrics into American Sign Language.

    DJ Kurs was super excited to work with Michaelson, too. "Our mission is to bridge the divide between the hearing and deaf worlds, and our collaboration is a significant step towards this goal. Our company is always exploring the synergy between ASL and music, and we're thrilled that our work is being seen by a new audience," he said. Michaelson has always been a super cool chick -- super funny, smart, and of course... talented. Just when we thought we couldn't love her more, she drops this incredibly empowering visual that will make your heart feel all warm and fuzzy.

    "Hell No" is the first single off of Ingrid Michaelsons upcoming album, It Doesn't Have to Make Sense,out August 26th.
