Armand Carr "The Voice"
Oakland native, Armand Carr, affectionately known as “The Voice”, recalls discovering his superpower—his voice—early in his career. While achieving success as a radio personality, he was inspired to become a voice in the community too. In 2016, he founded All Tied Up, a nonprofit that prepares young men for success. Armand has visited more than 100 schools and programs throughout the Bay Area and donated more than 3,000 ties. He reminds us to tap into the power of self-belief and the importance of using that power to help others. As a result of his outstanding work, Armand was named 2017 Jefferson Award Person of the Year for his contribution to the community, 2017 Black Enterprise 100 Men of Distinction, the 2017 Certificate of Special Recognition by Congresswoman Barbara Lee for his work in combatting human trafficking, the 2018 Chabot College “Striving Black Brothers Coalition Man of The Year”, recipient of the 2019 Steph Curry/Under Armour Community All-Star Award, and the Take Wings 2019 Angel Award recipient.
