We often get to record jobs we really enjoy, that make us very happy for many reasons. But every once in a while, we get to record something really meaningful, and it makes all the journey so worth it!

This week-end I recorded several voices for the Ellis Island museum Tour and the Statue of Liberty tour.

When I went to New York a few years ago, this was the highlight of the trip. I never imagined the flow of emotions that could develop in me while on the ferry to the islands, watching Manhattan fade away.
Walking to the Statue, The Symbol of freedom, of the American dream, I wanted to cry.
Knowing that my voice is going to be playing there every day suddenly gives sense to my whole career.
I know it's silly, it's just a job, but somehow it's not just a job.

Hi Steph,
I don't know when the recording will be available, but there's a good chance it'll be there next month. You'll have to get the French version though! :-)

Dear Claire,

Beautifully written and most surely beautifully narrated! I'll be in Manhattan next month and that is one of my stops. Will I be able to hear your voice by then on the tour?

Best wishes,

Stephanie
