Sylvia Villagran, the Voice of Today's Latina, joins forces with Prime Time Voices for Children, a new vocal organization encompassing over thirty of the country's top voice-over pros to help raise money for children.
The recording will be released Friday, December 15th online through CDBaby.com, Amazon, and iTunes. All proceeds will benefit the Chase Child Life program at Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA. Sylvia, along with members of the cast, will assemble at the hospital on Wednesday, December 21st to perform the story for the children.
"My mom and dad were the best storytellers" says Sylvia. "I believe it's why I fell in love with the art of storytelling and probably the reason I do voice over work. When I was asked to participate in this project I was excited not only that I got to read this beloved classic story but that all proceeds would go the Mattel's Children Hospital UCLA."
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).
Universal Music Group donated the music free of licensing fees to the cause. Additional donations to the Chase Child Life Program can be made through Fundly.
