It isn't everyday that you get to announce for a captive audience the world over!
Canadian voice over artist Lili Wexu shone brightly during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games as the French speaking announcer during both the Opening and Closing ceremonies.
At the top of her game, Lili has been announcing for a number of high profile national and international events via live broadcast.

One of the most prestigious roles a voice over talent can play is to serve as announcer during a live event hosted on the world's stage.
While all eyes at the opening ceremonies of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games were on the promenading athletes and performers, our team proudly took note that all ears were listening to Voices.com voice talent member and confident award-winning talent, Lili Wexu, a Canadian bilingual voice over professional who had the honor of delivering French announcements to an audience of over 60,000 people and millions upon millions of people around the globe.
To cap off the games, she also served as the French announcer for the Closing ceremonies.
Lili's voice, already recorded this spring, will be providing announcements at the Juno Awards Gala dinner for the second year running. The Juno Awards honor Canadian musicians and shines the spotlight on the Canadian music industry. She also announced at the Western Canadian Music Awards in 2009.
Over the past few years, Lili has found live announce to be an area of interest for her that has elevated her career to new heights.
In a previous article, we discussed whether or not the announcer has left the building... clearly, for events such as the Olympics, award shows, and so forth, the announcer is staying put and performs their role exceptionally well setting the tone for what is to come next and to give more dignity to high profile events.
Add a comment and let us know what you've been up to! Also, if you have any comments for Lili Wexu, you're welcome to share those too :)
Looking forward to hearing from you!
