We Three Kings Christmas

Enjoy a comical audio presentation of the three kings on their way to Bethlehem, performed by the man of over 4,000 voices, Pat Fraley.

Are We There Yet?

Dear Stephanie and VOX Daily readers,

I'm pleased to share the story of why I made the "Are We There Yet" recording with you at the VOX Daily blog.

Here's the back story:

A few years ago, my pastor, John MacArthur of Grace Community Church wrote a book entitled, "God's Gift of Christmas."

In it, many traditions are explained, and traditions peeled away from Biblical information.

I was struck at just how much tradition had "supplemented" and "fleshed-out" the information on the visitation of the Magi from the Book of Matthew.

I realized that I had been working under a kind of "Hallmark Card School of Theology."

I whipped a little script of these three Magi in the middle of nowhere trying to figure out what they knew and didn't know.

I choose my bad impressions of Sean Connery, James Earl Jones, and Jack Nicholson because they usually amuse friends and family, and, after all, this is Hollywood.

Merry Christmas, or whatever your tribe celebrates,

    Pat Fraley is one of the greatest voice talents of our time (in my most humble opinion!). Thank you for posting this!

    Pat taught me how to do character voices many years ago, and I still use his techniques today!

    I encourage anyone to learn what you can from him!

    Merry Christmas Pat and everyone at Voices.com!!

    Thank you again!
