Testimonials

John Phipps is blest with a beautifully modulated voice and a unique talent. Listeners to The Sight Seer may never see his face, most are blind, but they know his voice. His presentations are direct, interesting, enthusiastic and constructive, with humor when appropriate. His manner of reading descriptions of the scene as he reads a book delights his audience and adds to their interest. He becomes the characters as they appear in the story, bringing them to life. He is charming whether visiting or performing.
