The human voice, agreed, is God given. However, even God given tools can be misused. When you park a 200-mile-per-hour sports car along the side of the road and throw a tarp over it, what do you have? A ton of potential. Potential is like lightning in a bottle. It’s useless. You may have harnessed the atom, but can you generate usable power with it, without killing everything within miles? A Stradivarius violin is just an expensive fiddle until it is put in the hands of a master musician.
In over 40 years of teaching, training and managing “voices” in radio and television, in my opinion, having “golden pipes” is only the starting point for this guy. He has to want to be a star; and to put in the work it takes to make money at it.
You may have thousands of dollars of tools in a very expensive tool box, but if you don’t know how to take care of them or use them to capacity, some portion of the technology or gift is a total waste. I have known hundreds, if not thousands, of very gifted voiced people who are a total waste of time. A voice does not make you a communicator who knows how to manipulate content. No doubt, the world needs more folks who are effective communicators. Time will tell, if this fellow has the goods.
