Elijah Salaah

**VO Actor, Beat Boxer, Rapper**

Voice Description

I am an avant-garde beat boxer, VO actor, rapper, and sound effects guru that is constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible with the human voice. I have been blessed with an extremely versatile and well trained voice which is capable of producing a plethora of amazing voices, accents, impersonations, and sounds. I also write and perform custom raps, beat boxes, voice, or sound effects for TV and radio commercials, movies, video games, and audiobooks.

I provide my clients with excellent customer service and a very quick delivery time, sometimes less than 48 hours, and because I'm located in Midwest, where the cost of living is lower, I charge a very reasonable price for my services.

I am lucky to have a huge YouTube fan base that loves my beat boxing and rapping (search "esalaah" on YouTube to see me do my thang!). I have been beatboxing since I was a child, for a little over 25 years. I can do many things as a beat boxer than nobody can replicate, and I have a complex style all my own. I'm a master a weaving in beautiful melodies with beats, this is called "Beat Rhyming". I have developed an old school Hip-Hop Style or flavor.

As well as having excellent beat boxing skills, I can also impersonate virtually any rapper. I also love Karaoke, performing live, and free styling / battling on the mic.

I look forward to working with you on your next project! I'm a fun guy to work with, and a proven pro with the mic. One take is usually all I need.
