The Sign Singers perform on Stars on Sunday, with ‘Oh What a Beautiful Day’. They are introduced by Ian Watkins, the host of Stars on Sunday who says, “Oh What a Beautiful Day was sung by the Mormon Tabermacle Choir and translated for us into deaf sign language by the deaf sign singers who are all profoundly deaf and have become one of the most popular groups ever to appear on Stars on Sunday”.

Filmed on March 3, 1982 at Highwic, Newmarket, Auckland. Four songs were filmed that day at the same time, ‘Oh What a Beautiful Day’, ‘Harmony’, ‘Born Free’ and ‘Sailing’. This song screened on TVNZ nearly a year later, on February 20, 1983.
