We all have our reasons for doing what we do.
Maybe it makes you feel alive, like you're contributing in a positive way, or simply feels "right."
There must be something in you somewhere that drives your passion as professional.
Have you ever stopped to think about what motivates you to be a voice artist and where your energy is derived from? Why do you record voice overs?
Add your comments and join in the conversation!
Last weekend, I heard some of the most wondrous voices literally rocking the mics, full of passion and absolute determination.
Where was I?
At a church service listening to the Toronto Mass Choir under the direction of Karen Burke! Every bone in each singer's body was jumping, jiving, and giving it up to God with all the resources they could draw upon.
One could tell right away that what they were doing was electric and had a definite purpose, contagiously spreading their enthusiasm throughout the congregation with the clapping of hands, shouts of joy, and songs of deliverance.
Now, these are people who know what they're called to do!
After listening to their songs and a stunning rendition of "Oh Happy Day," I got to thinking about how they were indeed rocking their mics, and then my thoughts turned to you.
Do you get a sense of freedom, purpose, and a calling to be more than just a person behind a mic, but a person behind the mic with a mission?
I'd love to hear why you chose to be a voice over artist and what motivates you to work in this industry.
