Voice-overs for Valentines Day

Greetings,

If you're under the wire trying to find a voice-over talent for Valentines Day, you're not the only one.

Voice talents at InteractiveVoices are prepared to record your script and can do so within a matter of hours. Looming deadlines, loom no more! All you need is a plan and the right voice talent to bring your copy to life.

You might be interested in commercial voice-overs, but, have you thought about presenting a recording to a loved one as a gift on St. Valentine's Day? Perhaps, a heart fluttering rendition of "She Walks in Beauty, Like the Night" by Lord Byron (penned in 1814) - it's a public domain work, meaning that you can use it without having to pay royalties or a licensing fee.

Here's another idea... if you have a great voice (or a splendid way with words), why don't you record it yourself for your sweetheart? Most computers come with recording software and a modest internal microphone. Other recording methods might include a portable recording device, your stereo, or even by leaving a voicemail.

Since Valentines Day is only a week away, I thought it would be clever and helpful if this gem of a poem was published for you to discover, just in time.

SHE walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies,
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meets in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellow'd to that tender light
Which Heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impair'd the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress
Or softly lightens o'er her face,
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek and o'er that brow
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,--
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent.

P.S. If you would like to find additional poetry to record that is also in the public domain, just Google poets like John Keats, Lord Byron, William Shakespeare, Ben Jonson, Percy B. Shelley, and Robert (Robbie) Burns. I'm sure you'll find the right candidate for the job.

Or... you could write your own!
