Award Winning Voice Actor
Veleka Gray, born in New Orleans, mastered the North American Midwest accent early on for her multiple roles on network television and for radio and voiceover commercials and industrials.
Her vocal style is Classic, A Voice of Trust, A Voice of Authority, Wise & Weathered, Bright, Intelligent, Warm, and Sweet.
Hello, I’m Veleka! I’m a member of SAG-AFTRA, of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, and of Women in Film & Television.
I started my voice acting career at age eight by singing commercials for Dixie Maid Sugar at Motion Picture Advertising in New Orleans.
As a teenager, when I volunteered to read for The Lighthouse for The Blind, I learned to do punch-and-roll narration for books.
By the time I was in college, I was a voice-over pro and could be heard on radio and TV in local and regional commercials and was a narrator for documentary and industrial films.
After college, I moved to Los Angeles and then to New York City and signed with Kurt Frings for film and with Bill Cunningham for commercials.
When I wasn’t on set as a leading lady in daytime dramas on CBS and NBC or working on the Broadway stage, I voiced national commercials for such products as Noxzema, Pearl Drops Toothpaste, Excedrin, Coca-Cola, Palmolive Dishwashing Detergent, and dozens more. And I was a regular player on Himan Brown’s “CBS Radio Mystery Theater”.
I’m a recipient of the Star Performer Award from the NOLA Voice Foundation, and I have my own professional home studio with a phone patch for your convenience.
