VOG salutes US Veterans! Please join VOG and American Legion Post 220 Memorial Day 2011

Over the Christmas holidays, Voices Of Glory had the privilege to perform for veterans at the VA Hudson Valley HCS, Castle Hill Campus.  VOG met and spent time talking with so many amazing people – both patients and staffers – who have given so much to safeguard American ideals.

We feel like we can only say thank you for the service of US  Veterans to our country; though are appreciative also to have received the following thank you note from Yvette Rodriguez, Program Manager of Voluntary Service at the Department of Veterans Affairs Hudson Valley Health Care System.

VOG salutes our veterans, and look forward to entertaining them as often as we can!

As we all know, Memorial Day is coming up next week.  For many, it’s a vacation weekend – but it’s so much more than that. As the niece and nephews of veterans – our uncle and manager Gerard Cole, and other uncle Christian Cole who is buried in Arlington National Cemetery – we try always to thank veterans and future veterans for their service to America.

Each time VOG sings God Bless America, we are saying thank you for our freedoms!

This Memorial Day, May 30th, at 11am VOG will be performing God Bless America and the National Anthem as part of the program sponsored by American Legion Post 220 to honor US Veterans. The event will take place at Ozarks Memorial Park Cemetery located at 1638 E. Highway 76 in Branson, MO. In the event of rain, the event will take place at Post 220 Bingo Hall, 280 State Highway T.

We hope to see you there!  And please remember to thank a veteran!

God Bless America,

Nadia, Avery and Michael II

VOG international mission #1: Minister in Tanzania!

Recently, Voices Of Glory had the privilege to sing before and meet with 32 pastors from the Assemblies of God Churches in Springfield, MO. A special thanks to The Rev. Dr. Bamabas Mtokambali (see above) who is the General Superintendent of hundreds of Assemblies of God Churches in Tanzania and Senior Pastor at Bethel Revival Temple Church and to Pastor Al Pulis.

It was humbling and invigorating to discuss how VOG can do missions work in Tanzania in early 2012.  To achieve this goal, VOG will work to raise funds in order to travel to Tanzania with Pastor Pulis and members of his ministry staff and work with Rev. Dr. Mtokambali to see firsthand life in Tanzania.

VOG strives to make a difference in the lives of children in Tanzania and everywhere. As young adults, there is so much we can do; and we are serious about getting it done!  After all, God’s mission for us is our goal.

We promise to keep you posted on this initiative, and thanks in advance for all your support!  We can’t do it without you!

Blessings,

Nadia, Avery and Michael II

America’s Favorite Gospel Trio advances in bid for triple Diamonds

Voices Of Glory, finalists from NBC-TV’s America’s Got Talent, have advanced in the voting for the SGN Scoops 2011 Diamond Awards. The talented trio is nominated for Favorite Trio, Favorite Rising Artist, and Favorite Song for “Father Who Cares.” Online voting for the third round of the fan-based awards is slated to conclude May 21st.

“We are so thankful to have the support of our fans, friends and family,” said Michael Cole, II.  “From America’s Got Talent to now, so many people have been there to support us. It’s really humbling.”

The acclaimed Cole family siblings – Nadia, 11, Avery 15, and Michael, 18 – continue to impact the music industry with the strength and spirit of their self-titled CD, and professionalism.

“So many people say we inspire them, but, really, our fans inspire us to do what we do,” said Nadia Cole. “It’s important to us that we have the opportunity to give back to them as often as we can. Every time we sing one of our songs like “Father Who Cares,” or “You Untie My Wings,” it’s our moment to sing our thanks and give our praise,” she said.

“To be nominated and considered for 3 awards is amazing,” said Avery Cole. “The way our fans support us on our journey is just incredible.”

Though the trio continues their meteoric ascent, current blessings were initially shrouded in darkness.

In July 2005, the group’s mother who was formerly a school principal, Felicia Cole fell into an 8-month coma after a head-on collision with a drunk driver. At the suggestion of VOG’s father Michael Cole, the children sang at their mother’s bedside in the hopes of healing.

After Felicia Cole’s awakening, the talented siblings decided to use music to continue encouraging others through performances at nursing homes, hospitals, churches and an increasing audience of millions worldwide.

SGN Scoops is an online magazine dedicated to the Southern Gospel music industry, and was founded in 2000 by Allen Smith as a part of the Branson Gospel Music Convention.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Us with our Mom enjoying Mother's Day

“God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers,” states a Jewish proverb. That is the lifelong commitment of great moms to be every- and anywhere to help their children, kiss away pain, soothe, advise, provide a stern hand or whatever else their child might need to benefit.

To our mom Felicia Cole, it’s all about what’s best for us.

“Being a mother changes because the children are always changing,” our phenomenal mom said. “They are getting older and I have to cater to their needs and give good direction.”

“I do my best to give good direction when they ask or tell them what to do when they need direction,” she said. “You’ve got to do what you’ve got to do but they are very good because they listen.”

“Every day is Mother’s Day,” said our dad Michael Cole. He says each day is an opportunity for us to love one each other as a family because tomorrow is promised to no one.

So on this Mother’s Day, we celebrate all mothers for everything they do, especially for those who freely give unconditional love, and make all kinds of sacrifices just for the privilege of 3 letters … M-O-M.

To our Mom and Moms all over the world,

VOG says thank you and we love you!

Nadia, Avery and Michael II
