si è fatto sentire


Explanation:
Sono assolutamente d'accordo con la saluzione di Sabina e lo confermo con un agree più che convinto. Offro semplicemente una soluzione alternativa, meno accurata, ma forse un pochino più naturale, che magari permette alla frase di scorrere meglio (dipende da come l'hai tradotta nel suo insieme).
Buon lavoro!
