    / 5 Whitney Chamberlin for Job #182807 Yeah weddings promo video We have been searching for a VO artist for a long time, but without previous experience, it proved to be a tough search. Donal came to rescue with his interesting and versatile voice and his interpretation of the text was spot on.
