I've been told too many times that I have a great speaking voice; "Have I done professional speaking before?"...etc. I don't have any professional experience, I was, however, born with an articulate, lyrical, methodical and pleasantly profound gift of annunciation of the spoken word. Well, if people say it, then???....maybe there's some truth. I do have talent...and would be at least...worth a try. Worth an audition.
