Video: Deborah Voigt And Diane Rehm On Their Changing Voices
Opera singer Deborah Voigt and radio host Diane Rehm are both known for their voices.

Diane has been treating spasmodic dysphonia, a neurological voice disorder, since 1998. Voigt’s voice began to change, critics said, after a gastric bypass surgery helped her lose more than 100 pounds.
“Over the course of that long a career of course the voice is going to change,” Voigt told Diane.
“Of course,” Diane said.
“No matter what,” Voigt continued. “And I don’t know that it changes for the worse.”
