Voices have great impact. How many times have you heard a voice on TV or radio and instantly recognized it? You may have even recognized a person’s voice before you recognized their face. Folks with clear, distinctive voices are in high demand for radio, TV, and movie voice over work.
Below are a few folks from the entertainment world whose voices I’m pretty sure you’ve heard:
Morgan Freeman is often described as having the “voice of God.” He actually played God in the Jim Carrey film Bruce Almighty. Freeman’s voice and acting ability were unmistakable in The Shawshank Redemption, Driving Miss...
