Vocal Impressions: Hearing Voices, Round Five

Commentator Brian McConnachie has been asking listeners to describe their impressions of famous voices. In his last challenge, he asked listeners to describe the voices of Mick Jagger, Eleanor Roosevelt, Barry White and Luciano Pavarotti. You can read those results below.

McConnachie also offers up four new voices: Elvis Presley, Phyllis Diller, Celine Dion and Bobby Short.
