As with most boys, Foushee’s existence changed drastically when he reached puberty. However, in his case, it was more pronounced and sudden than usual. Overnight, when he was 13 years old, his voice deepened. He used to sound like a typical child, but then he caught an illness. When he awoke the next morning, his voice had significantly diminished. Initially, he believed it was a cold, which eventually subsided, but his voice never returned to its normal tone.
According to his mother, Joanna, they were initially perplexed by the voice, but as it persisted, they grew accustomed to it. During his appearance on ‘The Ellen Show,’ he discussed it. His companions realized he had a new voice and frequently sent him to greet women with “Hey, baby.” They even compensated him for recording their voicemails.
