Toodles The Pink Poodle: Disney animated film pilot features VOG

We just saw an article in Power Source Magazine about our work on the pilot for the upcoming Disney animated film “Toodles The Pink Poodle.”  Nadia is the voice of the character Lilly. She also sang a song with Michael and Avery.  VOG might do more work for the film which would be really cool!

The article below is about our studio session. You can also check out the story of Toodles The Pink Poodle from author and Disney Executive Producer Beth Roose. We had so much fun and are so thankful for the opportunity to work with Beth Roose and Disney, and look forward to great things … maybe even an Oscar!

The Voices Of Glory recently visited Nashville to record their voices for the highly-anticipated, upcoming Disney animation pilot film, Toodles The Pink Poodle. Nadia (11) plays the role of Lilly and is also featured singing a solo with Michael and Avery lending their talents to the background vocals. Regarding her experience recording the voice forToodles, Nadia exclaims, “This has to be one of the most exciting things I have ever done, and I look forward to doing many more!” Then, with a big smile she adds, “Maybe one day I will win an Oscar!”
Beth Roose, Executive Producer and writer of Toodles The Pink Poodle says, “I am truly amazed with their talent. I want to add, I am so honored to work with The Voices Of Glory. I wish everyone I worked with was so polite, respectful, and willing… all qualities I hold dear.”
Michael (18) and Avery (15) said that they are very proud of their little sister Nadia. Michael adds, “God has opened up so many doors for us, and we continue to give Him all the glory. We would also like to extend a sincere thank you to Executive Producer, Beth Roose for this amazing opportunity.”
The talented family trio is scheduled to travel back to Nashville to record two songs for the film later this month. When asked what songs they would be recording, Avery did not want to reveal them … However, with a grin he exclaimed, “They are songs the Gospel music audience will definitely be familiar with!” One thing is certain, with voices and harmony like The Voices Of Glory, the recordings will undoubtedly be a success!

America’s Got Talent’s favorite trio Voices Of Glory gives thanks to US military

With news of the capture and death of the terrorist Osama Bin LadenVoices Of Glory, a military family, express their thanks to US armed forces for their service and unwavering focus to make good on a mission to find one of the FBI’s ten most wanted.

“We come from a family of veterans,” said Michael Cole II, “and because of that sincere appreciation, we recorded our version of “God Bless America” on our CD. We feel strongly about the preservation of American freedoms and giving thanks to US servicemen and servicewomen for their sacrifices,” he said.

Voices Of Glory has a rich history of military service. Two of the group’s uncles, Gerard Cole and the late Christian Francis Cole have honorably served in the US Army.

“I served because it gave me an opportunity to give back to my country,” said Gerard Cole who also manages VOG. “A soldier’s service allows all Americans to live in a non-communist nation and have the freedoms we continue to enjoy today. If you appreciate your freedom, thank a soldier,” said the honorably discharged veteran of the US Army National Guard.

“My brother Sgt. Christian Francis Cole loved his service,” Gerard Cole about the now deceased army veteran. “Service was Christian’s whole life until he passed from cancer in 1999,” Gerard Cole said. As part of a special ceremony, Christian Cole is buried in Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C., he added.

“When we sang, “God Bless America” on America’s Got Talent,” said Avery Cole, age 15, “it was a definite decision to express our pride as Americans and to let others know how we felt about our country.”

“The loss of any life is troubling but the world feels safer today,” said eleven-year-old Nadia Cole of the Bin Laden news. “As artists, our purpose is all about healing, and, with this news, we hope the world will move closer to that,” Nadia Cole said.

Since inception, inspiration and healing have been the focus of VOG.

VOG began their journey in July 2005 after their mother Felicia Cole was seriously injured by a drunk driver and left in an 8-month coma. In response to the devastating news, the children sang at her bedside in the hopes that she would recognize their voices.

With their mother’s awakening, the talented trio continues to offer encouragement to others as they perform for audiences across the world.

America’s Got Talent trio to perform at historic Washington Avenue church

We wanted to share a recent press release about our performance this Sunday at Washington Avenue Baptist Church:

At 5pm on May 1st, America’s Got Talent finalists Voices Of Glory will perform at the historic Washington Avenue Baptist Church, located at 1722 North National Avenue, as presided by Sr. Pastor Dr. E. L. Alexander.  The event is free though a minimum donation of $10 is requested. Event inquiries can be directed to church representatives at (417) 866-2750.

Additional artists slated to perform include Bishop Kenneth Robinson and Chosen along with Sunday’s Best competitor Dee Dee Jones, and the Missouri State University and Washington Avenue Host choirs.

“To perform for such a noted congregation will be an honor,” said Michael Cole II, age 18 of Voices Of Glory. “We are humbled to sing at Washington Avenue Baptist Church,” he said of the renowned house of worship known to be the oldest African-American congregation in Springfield.

“Understanding our history is important,” said Avery Cole, age 15.  “I’m amazed at how committed the congregation was to maintain Washington Avenue Baptist Church,” he said about the brick by brick reconstruction in 2000 to make way for a new science center for Drury University when congregants disassembled and rebuilt the church 200 feet away from its original site.

The Cole brothers along with sister Nadia continue to earn accolades as a result of their critically acclaimed, self-titled CD.

“I’m excited,” said eleven-year-old Nadia Cole. “I can’t wait to sing at Washington Avenue Baptist Church. It’s going to be a blessing to us to perform there.”

VOG knows much about blessings.

It was in July 2005 the siblings received news that their mother Felicia Cole, was left in a coma for 8 months after being hit head-on and seriously injured by a drunk driver. In response to the devastating news, the children sang at her bedside in the hopes that she would recognize their voices.
