Voiceover Like Common
Voiceover That Sounds like Common
Common has achieved success spanning the music, film, television and commercial industries. Beginning his career as a rapper, he became known for his progressive, poetic lyricism and spoken word style delivery in his songs to address and call out injustice. His work earned several Grammy nominations and he won two Grammy awards for “Love of My Life (An Ode to Hip Hop)” in collaboration with Erykah Badu and another for “Southside” in collaboration with fellow Chicagoan Kanye West. His work alongside John Legend on the soul-stirring song “Glory” for the movie Selma won an Academy Award.
As an actor, Common has often stepped into roles portraying strong, confident, and tough characters. His on-screen credits include American Gangster, Wanted, Hell on Wheels, Selma, and John Wick: Chapter 2. Companies have also brought Common on as the face and voiceover behind campaigns for New Era, NBA 2K8, and Diesel to strengthen their brand. Common’s spoken word style performance in a recent Microsoft brand campaign is often referenced in voiceover casting specs as a style of read to emulate.
Spoken Word Voice Performance
Beyond music and acting, Common has used his presence and influence to give a voice to underrepresented groups and fight against injustice. He has started several non-profits and has led initiatives to raise visibility on key issues including HIV/AIDS awareness and incarceration. His captivating, strong, and poetic cadence in his delivery keeps listeners and viewers engaged in whatever type of work he does.
