Do We Inherit Our Voices?

John David Washington, son of Denzel Washington, sounds exactly like his father. Well, not *exactly* but listen to him talk with your eyes closed and your ears might perk up as mine did when I overheard an ad for Blackkklansman on YouTube.

It’s interesting to me because Denzel has such a distinct voice — can you name one similar? — that when I heard his son I did a double take of the TV.

Do we inherit our voices? I don’t sound like my mom, but I definitely share vocal qualities with my sisters; we’re often confused for one or the other. I did a quick Google search with no conclusive answer as of yet, but it’s something I want to learn more about. Can you provide any insight?

In the meantime, check out this video of John David talking to Jimmy Kimmel and let me know your thoughts!
