How Hillary Enlisted the 'Voice of God' to Propel Her Campaign to Victory

Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman has an incredibly soothing and easily identifiable voice. In fact, he played the voice of God in the 2003 film Bruce Almighty. Now, he's the voice of Hillary for America, at least in her latest ad.
Hillary doesn't speak in the ad other than to say she approves the message, which Freeman narrates about the presidential candidate's life.
"Her church taught her how to do all the good you can, for all the people you can, for as long as you can," Freeman says. "After law school, she could have joined a high-priced law firm, but instead she worked to reform the juvenile justice system in South Carolina, exposed racism in Alabama schools, registered Latino voters in Texas and provided legal aid to families in Arkansas.
"Her life's work has been about breaking barriers and so would her presidency," Freeman says. "Which is why for every American who's not being paid what they're worth, who's held back by student debt, or a system tilted against them—and there are far too many of you—she understands that our country can't reach its potential unless we all do."
The 60-second ad features old photos and black-and-white footage of Clinton. The character actor Reg E. Cathey of the Netflix drama House of Cards has narrated several ads for Senator Bernie Sandersm including "Wheels of Inevitability" last week.
