Why is "У мамы есть громкий голос." an incorrect solution? Is using "есть" only the way to say someone has something when that something is a physical object?

    Using «есть» would emphasise the fact that a mom has voice, which should be pretty obvious anyway (unless sheʼs actually a mermaid or something).
