The voice


We all know his voice – his deep, calm bravado narrates documentaries, is the current voice of VISA and is now replacing Walter Cronkite’s voice on the CBS Evening News.  Ladies and gentlemen I’m talking about Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman.

Now you know me, I could listen to Morgan Freeman read a phone book. There’s something about his audio frequency that is calm and soothing.  Like waves washing up on a soft white sandy beach…

Er.  Sorry – lost concentration for a second.

He’s been featured recently as the voice of VISA and let me tell you he’s been great (see the video posted below).  But as the new introductory voice of CBS, will it work?  Is Morgan Freeman’s voice too associated with VISA now?

  1. Maybe I’m just not that smart but how does 1 click of a button and Visa debit cards have anything to do with dancing like a idiot?

Have something to say? Would love to hear your comments!
