From The Hollywood Reporter:
Voiceover actress Cynthia Songe dies
Credits included 'Stuart Little,' 'Clifford'
Staff report

May 21, 2010, 07:35 PM ET
Cynthia Songe, a voiceover actress who also taught and wrote about her craft, died May 19 after a brief illness in Arroyo Grande, Calif. She was 58.

Songe's deep, distinctive voice can be heard in commercials and on such TV shows and films as "Clifford," "Stuart Little," "Ben & Izzy" and "Curious George."

After graduating from UCLA, Songe worked as an actor and director and became a member of the Ensemble Studio Theater, but after taking a voiceover class with Susan Blu, she found her niche.

Working with Blu -- an accomplished voice director in the animation industry -- Songe helped her students work toward successful voiceover careers, with a focus on the development of what she called "the signature voice."

Songe and Blu wrote the 2006 manual "Word of Mouth: A Guide to Voiceover Excellence, Volume 3."

In addition to Blu, her spouse, Songe's survivors include her sister, Susan Songey; nephew Chris Jackowchik and his wife Ginger; and grand niece and grand nephew Ellie and Will.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Woods Humane Society in San Luis Obispo, Calif.

Oh how sad!! I met up with her when I was in LA in 2008. She was so encouraging...a great person.

Very sad indeed.

I've been unplugged from the web recently and thus a little out of touch with news and just got a heads-up on this Thursday through a fellow animation fan.

Very sorry to hear this. My heart goes out to her family and friends.

I'm also working on a tribute via my blog -- if anyone happens to have any photos, stories or thoughts to share about her, please send me a PM. They would be greatly appreciated.
