Sovas AwardWhere can you find some of the best voiceover artists? (Learning Ally! Learning Ally!) You’ve got that right! Learning Ally is thrilled to announce that two of our audiobooks have been nominated by the The Society of Voice Arts and Sciences (SOVAS) for Best Voice Over Audiobook Narration! Our volunteer-narrated-books, Unbound and March Book Three from the March Trilogy, have received this prestigious honor and we are grateful to our amazingly talented voiceover community for their hard work and dedication. 

Drum roll please...

Unbound Voice Over Narrator Clyla DestinyIn the category of Best Voiceover Audiobook Narration- Teens, Learning Ally volunteer Clyla Destiny has been nominated for her powerful work on Unbound by Ann E. Burg. Clyla showcases her background in spoken-word poetry in this unforgettable story of escaped enslaved people fighting for survival. And wait for it....it’s her first audiobook! Way to go Clyla!

Voice Over Professional Dave Fennoy MarchIn the category of Best Voiceover Audiobook Narration- History, Learning Ally volunteer Dave Fennoy has been nominated for his work on March Book Three by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell. Dave is a well-known industry powerhouse, with extensive experience in commercials, documentaries, and especially video games. His vast talent is put to work on this amazing project, as he brings Lewis's searing memoir of the fight for Civil Rights to life in an extraordinarily vivid way. We are excited to have this celebrity in our volunteer voiceover community at Learning Ally.

Not only would we like to congratulate Clyla & Dave on their amazing nominations, but we would also like to congratulate our entire Learning Ally Production team! Thank you to our volunteers Susan Smith and John Arnott, as well as staff members Michael Kinsey, Alexis Bourbeau, and Kevin Ziegler! Go team!

Award winners will be announced on Sunday, November 17th during the Voice Arts® Awards Gala at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, CA. Get out your fancy dresses, Learning Ally will see you on the red carpet!
