VO Superstars Cut 'Night Before 'Christmas' For Charity
December 6, 2011 at 3:47 PM (PT)
The top voiceover pros in the country, led by JOE CIPRIANO, gathered in studios this week to donate their time and talent to record "THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS" to benefit PRIME TIME VOICES FOR CHILDREN. This is the first time that the people whose voices are heard every day on TV, radio and in movie theaters have had the opportunity to participate in a recording project and live performance for this cause.
JOE CIPRIANO produced the project and JOHN MASECAR was the sound designer of the classic holiday poem. STEVE BRAVIN and his team at Killer Tracks, courtesy of UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP, donated the music free of licensing fees to the cause. The track can be purchased on CDBABY.COM, AMAZON and iTUNES. Donations can be made through Fundly.
"With so many stations presenting 24-hour-a-day CHRISTMAS programming for the season," CIPRIANO said. "We felt there was an opportunity to offer up new and unique holiday content for radio programmers and music directors to freshen up their playlists of holiday classics and do some good for children."
The cast includes well-known movie trailer voices such as ASHTON SMITH, BEN PATRICK JOHNSON and SCOTT RUMMELL, TV network voices CIPRIANO (CBS), RINO ROMANO (NBC) RANDY THOMAS (ET) and GEORGE DELHOYO (Fox) and animation voice actors BOB BERGEN (PORKY PIG) and PAT FRALEY (GHOSTBUSTERS) join the cast of 31 voice actors.
The group has made the track available for radio stations to download, and all are encouraged to include a donation link on their website so that listeners can make a donation to PRIME TIME VOICES FOR CHILDREN to benefit MATTEL CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL UCLA. The group requests that radio stations mention the donation button on-air before and after playing the recording.
