Welcome to the worldwide ministry of Voices Of Glory and amazing world of the Cole Family.

No stranger to winning fans and accolades, NBC-TV’s America’s Got Talent finalists Voices Of Glory has won the SGN Scoops 2011 Diamond Award for favorite new artist: the Sunrise Award, announced Southern Gospel News.

“We are so thankful for this award,” said Michael Cole, II of VOG. “It amazes me that we were nominated for three awards, and that we won the Sunrise Award is such a compliment from our fans,” Cole said about VOG’s additional nominations for Favorite Trio and Favorite Song for “Father Who Cares,” in the fan-based competition.

“We give all honor to God,” said VOG’s Nadia Cole. “He has blessed our family in so many ways. We are grateful for His favor, and to our fans for their continued support of our music,” she said.

“Ministry comes first in our mission to heal others with VOG’s music,” said Avery Cole of Voices Of Glory, “Initially when we started singing, it was to heal our mother and now we’re able to help others,” Avery Cole said referring to the July 2005 accident of the group’s mother Felicia Cole who, before reawakening, was in an 8-month coma after collision with a drunk driver. VOG’s father Michael Cole suggested the children sing at their mother’s bedside that she may hear and be healed.

Their eponymous CD showcases the talents of Cole family siblings – Michael, 19 Avery 15, and Nadia, 11 – as they impact the music industry and fellowship with purpose.

“Southern Gospel fans are particular about their music. Competition was fierce,” said group manager Gerard Cole. “Fans spoke loud and clear when they picked VOG as their favorite rising artist, and considered VOG among other amazing artists like Jason Crabb, Gaither Vocal Band, the Booth Brothers, and Driven Quartet.

“These young people are serious about their ministry. They sing from their heart to heal and inspire others,” Cole said.  “We are deeply thankful to SGN and VOG supporters for this honor and any opportunity it may bring for Voices Of Glory Global Ministries to do even more good work through music.”

VOG has also launched Voices Of Glory Global Ministries to raise awareness of children’s and global issues and create opportunities for better nutrition, shelter, safety, education, spiritual edification, and a greener environment.  The group next plans to conduct a ministry trip to Tanzania.  For more information or to donate, visit: http://voicesofgloryglobalministries.org/ or http://voicesofglory2020.tatemusicgroup.net/.

The counting is done and … we won!  Voices Of Glory has won the 2011 SGN Scoops Diamond Award for Favorite Rising Artist!  We are so amazed by how God works and how much our fans support our music!

A Great Dad is a Gift

A great dad …

Teaches with love about the big things in life.

Talks so we understand.

Is an example of what to do and who to be.

Keeps us safe.

Guides us to make good decisions.

Reminds us to carry the Word within our hearts.

Loves us unconditionally.

Never lets us down.

We love you, Dad!

Happy Father’s Day to you and all the other great Dads (uncles, brothers, and sons) out there for all you do and who you are!

Recently, Voices Of Glory accompanied our friend Angela Marie to Missouri. Her son’s family had lost their home as a result of the devastating EF-5 tornado that struck Joplin. With so many killed, hurt, missing and businesses destroyed, it was an honor to pitch in to help, fellowship together and perform to inspire ourselves and others in the midst of such tragedy.

To learn more about the day, check out VOG’s video as posted on Facebook.

You can also donate via the American Red Cross.

Stay strong Joplin!

To God Be The Glory,

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

Our Dad (far left) and Mom (center) also had the honor to meet and spend time with General Superintendent Rev. Dr. Barnabas Mtokambali of the Tanzania Assemblies Of God Churches after VOG’s recent performance in Springfield, MO.

Everyone looks so nice! It was a great day!

To God Be The Glory,

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
