Lunch Group 1


Casey Erin Clark

Casey Erin Clark is a professional actress who, after 18 months on tour with Les Miserables, read the book Half the Sky and got fired up about issues facing women in the world today.  The answer to “what can I do?” came out of her passion for the human voice.  Casey co-founded Vital Voice Training, a voice and speech coaching company on a mission to change the conversation about what women are “supposed” to sound like and empower everyone to own the power of their full vocal instrument and presence.

She also teaches singing to pros and amateurs of all ages, performed on the 2013 Oscars with the Les Mis movie cast, and will be featured on the upcoming concept album for brand new musical The Innocence.  Casey sang her first solo at 4 and was branded “bossy” back in kindergarten — she can recommend the best breakfast in most major cities in the US — and is happy to demonstrate the Lafayette speed rap from Hamilton. @caseyerinclark and @vital_voice
