Because every time you speak, you use your voice!
When I was on the road as an artist, I used to try to get interviews scheduled for AFTER my performance instead of before, because I noticed that using my speaking voice negatively affected my singing voice.
Now I talk all day and never get vocally tired! It's truly amazing. When you learn to "pull" instead of "push" your speaking voice out, it seems that you almost communicate by telepathy, it's so effortless to your throat. You resonate your rich speaking tones out and they invite listening!
Perfect practice makes perfect performance. While I usually don't like using the "p" word (perfect), I use it to make a point here. Every time you speak you practice using your voice. So watch your mouth, as your mama always said!
