I have such a fun treat for you today. As a celebrity vocal coach, Denise Woods is the "voice behind the voice." She's worked with Halle Berry, Will Smith, Jessica Chastain, Queen Latifah, Idris Elba and so many other A-list celebrities. But here's the cool thing; Denise can also help those of us who aren't celebs use our voice to the best of its ability, actually improving our lives in the most unexpected ways.
