Man with World's Lowest Voice Only Heard by Elephants

Think Morgan Freeman has a deep voice? Meet Tim Storms, whose lowest note is so deep that only elephants can hear it.

Storms, a U.S. singer with a vocal range of an incredible ten octaves, is able to reach notes as low as G-7 (8 octaves below the lowest G on a piano).

The notes are so deep that he can't even hear them while he's singing, relying instead on being able to feel the frequencies.

The secret to Storms' remarkable abilities are his unusually long vocal chords, which doctors say are about twice the length of a normal human beings' vocal folds.

He currently holds the world record for the lowest note produced by a human, as well as the record for the widest vocal range.

Storms is now in hot demand from Hollywood voice over producers, who eagerly track him down to use his husky inflection on film trailers.

Probably beats hanging out at the zoo having a one-way conversation with the elephants...
