Kesha Monk on Twitter: “Where’s my cheering squad at? I’m the 1st little black girl to live announce at The Tonys. I. AM. BLESSED. Y’all just don’t understand. 😩 #voiceover #announcer https://t.co/3zepQi2Fba” / Twitter
For those who may not know, the VOICE OF GOD announcer is the off-stage ringmaster who introduces all of the presenters and acts. (PLEASE WELCOME…..). She also served a lot of the facts about the winners as they go up onto the stage to accept their Tonys.
Monk’s career as a voiceover actress has been around for over 25 years. Her voice has been heard in a lot of commercials including for Busch Gardens, McDonald’s, Dunkin’ Donuts, SeaWorld, NJ Education Association, Rutgers University, and more. She is also the live announcer for The Soul Train Awards on BET.
Monk replaces the Tony’s legendary longtime announcer Randy Thomas who previously did it for the last 18 Years. Thomas also serves as the first woman announcer ever for Award shows…. not just for the Tonys but the Oscars, Emmys, and so much more.
Awesome job Kesha!!
How amazing was Kesha’s voice last night?!!!
