Welcome to Act Your Voice Out: Season 2!! Last season we witnessed some incredible voice work and performances from our contestants. The talent was so high in our inaugural season that it even garnered the attention of legendary voice actor James Arnold Taylor.

  "Good luck to the finalists!! As the voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Plo Koon on Clone Wars I suppose I should be worried about losing my job after this round! : ) JAT"

"My pleasure! Great site, great to see so many people with a love for VA and the many incredible performers out there! Best-JAT"

"@Stingervoice I'm honored and humbled Stingervoice, I know you both will do great, no need to be anything but confident! JAT"

"Congrats to Pgirts, well done! And congrats to Stingervoice, as it was a true feet to come in as a person totally new to VO and make such an impact, I think it's safe to say that I will be hearing both of you in various forms (and voices) for many years to come! Or perhaps be in the booth with you both soon. Also a big thanks to the folks at BTVA you all truly make the art of Voice-Acting stand out and I thank you for taking the time to always do such great stuff for our community! Look forward to the next contest! Blessings to you all, JAT"
