If you have watched the movie CODA, you’ve probably recognized the song that actress Emilia Jones sang in sign language for her audition at Berklee College of Music. Her own rendition of “Both Sides, Now” brought many audiences to tears when they saw and listened to her voice, honoring the lyrics of Joni Mitchell who originally created the song.
