Vocal coach may not seem the likeliest of professions to prepare for a life of secrecy.
But in some ways, Calgary’s Tamara Beatty’s background made her uniquely suited for her longtime stint behind-the-scenes in reality TV. She has spent the past eight years working on shows such as The Voice and, most recently, Fox’s recent sensation The Masked Singer. As with anyone who has worked in the strange world of reality TV, staying mum has been one of the job requirements. After all, shows are taped months before they air and keeping the results secret is paramount. But this hasn’t been a problem for Beatty, who proudly describes herself as a “walking vault” in that regard.
“I’m often walking around with secrets,” she says. “I’ve learned not to say anything at all.”
