From Felicia Joy To Bill Hickman (Re: Job #29441) Bill's voice is a prize instrument and he knows how to use it very well. In addition to being a great talent Bill was also very customer service oriented. He contacted me before starting the project to make sure he fully understood what I needed. And, he made a couple edits to the project with no questions asked. Working with him was a 5-star experience all around. I highly recommend him.Jan 9, 2011
