Morgan Freeman Reads Oxford’s New Definition of “Twerking” (VIDEO)

The fact is this: Everyone loves Morgan Freeman's voice. You know it. We know it. And HLN knows it. On the cable news channel's show Morning Express, host Robin Meade had the 76-year-old Oscar winner read some of today's top stories, including Oxford Dictionaries Online' recent addition of the word "twerking."

As Oxford sees it — and Morgon reads it — to twerk is to "dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance."

The Last Vegas star's voice lends an air of authority and warmth to anything it touches, which is why he's been tapped to provide the narration of March of the Penguins, War of the Worlds, the Science Channel show Through the Wormhole, the intro to CBS Evening News, the spoken-word part of B.o.B's song "Bombs Away," and all the Visa commercials during the Olympics.

In 2011, Morgan told an interviewer is that the secret to his rich timbre is constant yawning.

Bless you and your beautiful, beautiful voice, Mr. Freeman… Now show us how you twerk.
