Claron McFadden

"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."

American Musician
1961 -

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.

Now, listen to Claron McFadden talk about the human voice and demonstrate its power.
