I’ve been charmed by her voice for years, but I am just one of the millions of guests who she has touched over the years. Debbie Johnson was a member of Voices of Liberty – Disney’s renowned A Capella group – one of the original Disney cast members from the opening of EPCOT in 1982. Now she’s ready to retire and is nearing the final coda of her time with the Voices of Liberty. She shares some of her memories with on the Walt Disney World in the Community Facebook page.

The Orlando Sentinel also has a nice interview with Johnson.

And here’s Debbie and the Voices of Liberty singing a “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee”:

I know I’ll miss not having Debbie anchoring the Voices of Liberty. She always took the time to talk with fans after shows and even learned my son’s name. Do you have a favorite memory of Debbie or the Voices of Liberty?

    Just to be clear: it was EPCOT Center that opened in 1982 (WDW went back to the original name for Polynesian Village, so maybe there’s hope for EPCOT Center).
    And the Voices of Liberty has always been a highlight of the American Adventure, especially at Christmas.

    I just went to see Debbie last week and told her I wish her luck in her journey after this and she was just so sweet and truly a kind person. I will miss seeing her perform.

    The Voices of Liberty is really the only reason my parents and now just my mom would get an AP…….when they come down to SnowBird for the winter they would go 2 or 3 days a week and listen to 2 or 3 sets of Voices……my parents seem to know all of them by name and what parts they sang……..It was always special when the Voices would sing a request for my Mom and would sing Happy Birthday every year……I know she will miss Debbie’s voice and seeing her in the group
