Seasons Greetings...Happy Holidays...or Merry Christmas; whatever term you choose to use, this time of year is my favorite time because I can bring out the 'Santa' voice lol. I really like putting on my Santa voice and I've gotten some really nice responses to it, as well. It's funny how came to be: I was at a Holiday party a bunch of years ago when a 'Santa' commercial came on tv; the actor had a great voice, so I started to recite the commercial (I'm sure the 'eggnog' had alot to do with that...lol). A few people looked at me and said: 'Wow that was good'. So I worked on developing my 'Santa' voice.
As with normal voice delivery your diaphragm plays a big part; however, for a 'Santa' delivery, it comes from much deeper than that. The best way I can describe it is: 'Right from the gut.'
A short time later I voiced and produced a version of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' you can listen to it by clicking HERE. Everytime I listen it brings a smile to my face, maybe it'll bring one to your face, too.
All the best to you and your family this Holiday Season and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.
