Job Description

We are working on a series of short (2-5 minute) educational animations for parents. These animations are fun, entertaining, but also meant to serve as parenting resources.

We're currently trying to fill the role of "Cheryl." Cheryl is a recurring character in our animations. She is a 38 year old African American mother, who lives with her family in Chicago. She is very involved with her immediate family (her college-age son and husband) as well as her extended family, who she spends a lot of time with. Cheryl is a strong female figure: confident, a little sassy, and soulful.

In this script, Cheryl raps. Her rap is the climax of the animation, so we need a confident female voice talent who can both rap AND act. We have the lyrics of the rap, and we have an example beat, but but we need someone who is willing to experiment a little bit with what sounds best. We are open to any suggestions!

When auditioning, please read some (no need to read all) of Cheryl's speaking lines as well as the entire rap. Again, you can follow your own instinct on the beat of the rap, etc.

For recording purposes: a phone-patch isn't necessary but since this role might require some coaching, it would be helpful.


Note from Voices.com: It is recommended that you protect all your audition work by watermarking the submission or only recording a portion of the script provided by the client. This will render your audition file useless for anything other than reviewing your voice. Not sure what watermarking is? Please visit our FAQ section for more information.
