2015 marked the Diamond Anniversary of One Voice Children’s Choir, which originated from a group of children who sang at the 2002 Winter Olympics. Their beloved Director, Masa Fukuda, made such an impact on them that they asked to continue to sing together. Through the efforts of supportive parents the choir continued and in the summer of 2005 the group was named One Voice Children’s Choir.
The choir is comprised of 140 children ages 4 to 18 who reside in northern Utah along the Wasatch Front. Since its inception over 500 Utah children have had the opportunity to participate in the choir. One Voice Children’s Choir has received numerous awards including the John Lennon International Music Award and the Best of State Award for Best Children’s Performing Group as well as the BOSS statue for the most outstanding in the Arts and Entertainment division.
In early 2014 One Voice Children’s Choir was featured with Alex Boyé in a music video cover of “Let It Go” from the Disney movie Frozen. The video went viral with over 60 million YouTube views and was named YouTube’s Top Cover of 2014. Later that year the choir competed on America’s Got Talent and was selected as one of the Top 48 acts in the country. In August 2014 over 100 choir children traveled to New York City and performed in the live quarter-final round of AGT at Radio City Music Hall. One Voice Children’s Choir continues to produce frequent music videos and performs more than 40 times a year with an aim of sharing their talents joyfully with people around the world.
