Perhaps it is the distinctive velvet-smooth voice and calming demeanor that made Freeman a household name. A sonorous sound continues to guide audiences through the Shawshank Redemption prison, the car rides of Driving Miss Daisy, the March of the Penguins documentary and even the Hall of Presidents at Walt Disney World.
