Sing, Sing a Song Saturday

Sing, Sing a Song Saturday is all about me discovering something that is different. I don't want to post things that you and I have more than likely heard before. I want to find something different. It could be from another country, someone singing from the streets of NY, and more.

Michael Winslow is an American actor, and comedian billed as the "Man of 10,000 Sound Effects" for his ability to make realistic sounds using only his voice. 

I've haven't seen Michael Winslow in Police Academy, and Spaceballs. I know what's wrong with me that I've never seen those movies? I have heard his voice in the Gremlins. He's been the voice in many cartoons as well.

I didn't know the power of his sound effects.

Michael was born September 6, 1958, as the youngest of six brothers. His mom told stories about when he was young he would imitate the airplanes, jet engines, basically anything that made a noise he copied with sounds that came out of his mouth.

“Growing up in the Air Force Base made it difficult to have friends, so I created imaginary friends, dogs, cats, trucks, anything that would keep me occupied for the moment” says Michael.

That is really neat. I have never seen either of those movies, either, but I did see Gremlins and had no idea he did that voice.

Oh how fun! This guy is amazing. The first time I was introduced to Michael was in the 80s movies Police Academy. He was brilliant & totally cracked me up with his cool sound effects. Thanks for joining the 4M crew on the dance floor!
