Your blog is about to be recorded into an audiobook. If you could choose anyone — from your grandma to Samuel L. Jackson — to narrate your posts, who would it be?
“Yes We Can“.….This comment of Barack Obama changed the history of USA, catapulting a person from humble background to the chair of President making him the first African American to hold the coveted office.
The rich baritone coupled with sincerity and compassion has engrossed the attention of millions of people who were looking for a ray of hope when the world was going through economic slowdown.
Although it’s difficult for someone to express my creativity with the same gusto, however if given a choice to appoint someone to record my blog into an audio book then it has to be in the magical voice of Mr President….Sir Barack Obama.
Mr Barack Obama uses rhythm, body language, pauses and punctuation and nuances in voice tone to “sing” a speech like Dr. King… but at his best Barack Obama comes closest. He has the capacity to play an audience as if it were part of his own personal orchestra and that is a level of mastery that few ever reach.
Just a couple of years ago a young state senator spoke for 16 minutes and 11 seconds (just 4 seconds longer than the real “King’s Speech,” Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream,” the greatest in modern American history), launched a presidency and established himself as one of America’s greatest orators.
How I wish if today Sir Martin Luther King was alive then definitely he would have taken precedence over the next best choice.
