My Name is Vincent E O'Hearn Sr. I am a 49 year old man living in New Jersey. I have lived on the East Coast virtually my whole life but my impressionable years were spent in the Midwest. I've been told I have a very nice voice not bearing any strong accent. People in the midwest say I don't sound like I am from New Jersey and people on the East Coast say that I don't sound like I am originally from the midwest. I would love to share my potential abilities with you. Please contact me.
