"The human voice: mysterious, spontaneous, primal. For me, the human voice is the vessel on which all emotions travel — except perhaps jealousy. And the breath, the breath is the captain of that vessel. A child is born, takes its first breath — and we behold the wondrous beauty of vocal expression — mysterious, spontaneous and primal."
When I was fifty years old, I finally realized that my voice was a gift. No, I am not a singer. I can't even carry a tune. As a child, I was given the speaking parts in church plays because I had a loud voice. My gift is my loud voice. And about 90% of the people in my audiences like it and 10% don't. I have people tell me they could listen to my voice all day and others who wish I would shut up.
Remember your voice is the vessel for your emotions. Take a deep breath and let it out with power, passion and persistence. Be yourself.
