Morgan Freeman is known for his extensive acting resume which dates back to the mid-eighties. But another quality that probably tranquilizes everyone’s earbuds is his serene voice.
During an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the Lean On Me actor was asked about the sound of his voice and what his thoughts are on how people have dubbed it “the voice of god.” Freeman simply praised his acting school instructor for the assistance.
“In that school, Los Angeles City College, I had a voice and diction instructor who was very good at his job,” he told the late night television host. “So you had to learn to speak and sound your vital consonants.” Ahead of his latest film’s premiere, London Has Fallen, Freeman will lend his vocal chords to another program. And yes, you guessed it.
The Story of God will be narrated by the 78-year-old in a six-part series that airs on the National Geographic Channel on April 3. The show will depict religious ceremonies across the globe, and visit holy sites like Vatican City to the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem.
