Have you ever had a brush with greatness?
Whether it's been a local on-air personality or a Hollywood Starlet, we've all had a 'brush' with greatness at some time or another.

While many keep their eyes out for people for individuals in the media and cultural icons including actors, musicians, royalty, authors, and high profile activists and politicians, there are people who are giants in their own right that walk among us that we interact with as well, even if we are not fully aware of their influence.
As is the case with voice over, being heard and not seen, it is harder for someone to recognize you if you are a vocal celebrity and not an on-camera talent.
However, when someone runs into a voice actor and then discovers that the person they are standing beside has been a part of their life over the years through various cartoons, commercials, announcements, on-air, or through narrations on TV, they can hardly believe their eyes and it often is more affecting than meeting someone who you are accustomed to seeing in person as your image and expectations regarding that person are already formed.
Greatness is a very subjective term, and just like beauty, greatness is in the eye of the beholder.
What defines greatness in your opinion and have you been in the presence of greatness?
