NEWARK, N.J. – October 22, 2020 – Audible Inc., the world’s largest producer and provider of original spoken-word entertainment and audiobooks, today announced a multi-project development deal with The SpringHill Company, founded by NBA superstar LeBron James and his longtime business partner Maverick Carter, to produce exclusive audio content. The multi-project slate, focusing on culturally influential content, kicks off with More Than A Vote: Our Voices. Our Vote. The first-of-its-kind special, produced in collaboration with Cadence 13, will launch in support of the More Than A Vote initiative, a new voting rights organization led by a coalition of Black athletes and artists including James aimed at combating voter suppression and misinformation that disproportionately disenfranchises communities of color. More Than A Vote is available for pre-order today at Audible.com/morethanavote, and will premiere on October 27th for free within the Audible Premium Plus catalog.

"Influential creators like LeBron, Maverick, and the SpringHill team keep us motivated to continue creating storytelling experiences that spark critical conversations and cultivate change," said Rachel Ghiazza, Executive Vice President, Head of US Content at Audible. "Joining forces with this fearless group, we strive to empower our millions of listeners and provide resources to elevate their voices, and what better way to start than with an inspiring Words + Music special to reinforce the mission of LeBron's More Than A Vote initiative."

More Than A Vote: Our Voices. Our Vote., co-hosted by Tiffany D. Cross (media and political analyst and author of Say It Louder!: Black Voters, White Narratives, and Saving Our Democracy) and Wesley Lowery (60 Minutes correspondent), offers an educational deep dive into the history and the truths of voting. Through storytelling, interviews, archival audio and song, the program will draw on the wisdom, humor, and talents of a remarkable group of entertainers, writers, public officials, athletes and artists including:

  • Leon Bridges, Grammy-winning Artist
  • LaTosha Brown, Co-Founder, Black Voters Matter
  • Andra Day, Grammy-nominated Artist
  • Addisu Demissie, Executive Director, More Than A Vote

The exclusive audio special will also incorporate facts about the electoral process and education around the very real threat that voter suppression poses to American democracy – specifically in African-American communities.

Two additional audio original projects from The SpringHill Company are currently in development exclusively for Audible. Timing and further details are forthcoming.

The More Than A Vote special will be part of Audible’s Words + Music, a growing collection of original audio productions combining storytelling and music, designed exclusively for Audible listeners.

Projects produced under this deal will join a series of best-in-class Audible Originals including recent releases such as The Pursuit of Healthiness with Blake Griffin, the #1 New York Times best-selling audio fiction title The Sandman from Neil Gaiman, performed by James McAvoy, Kat Dennings and Michael Sheen, Letters from Camp, produced and performed by Jamie Lee Curtis, and Bluebird Memories: A Journey through Lyrics & Life performed by Common, among many more.
