/24-7PressRelease.com/ - CINCINNATI, Ohio; February 12, 2005 - Brother Ray: Ray Charles' Own Story is the latest in a string of notable narration and voiceover projects completed by Andrew Barnes of Cincinnati.Brother Ray tells the singer's early life story in a conversational tone that allows the distinctive voice of Ray Charles to shine through. When an equally distinctive narrative voice was needed for the audiobook version of Brother Ray, Blackstone Press turned to Andrew Barnes.
Barnes has gained national recognition for his work as a voice talent. In addition to Brother Ray, his recent projects include the Booker T. Washington National Monument multimedia project, a character
voice for the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, a history of the African Holocaust, and commercials for prominent companies such as Kroger and Key Bank. Andrew Barnes has a powerful,effective vocal style and extensive theatrical experience that make him a compelling storyteller and equipped him to tell the Ray Charles story with authenticity and conviction. Written when the late Ray Charles was 48 years old, Brother Ray incorporates Charles' own voice with
the storytelling skills of co-author David Ritz to create what the Los Angeles Times called an "unsparingly personal document that bears a striking resemblance to Ray Charles sitting around with close friends rapping." Additional details can be obtained from Blackstone Audiobooks (www.blackstoneaudio.com).
Andrew Barnes is available through his company, The Voiceover Guy LLC (www.thevoiceoverguy.com), and can be contacted at 877-THE-VGUY (877-843-8489).
