One Voice Children’s Choir

One Voice Children’s Choir is comprised of children ages four through eighteen living along the Wasatch Front in the United States. One Voice Children’s Choir began at the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. Since then One Voice Children’s Choir has grown into a unique force in the entertainment world: Quarter-finalist on NBC’s America’s Got Talent Season 9, performing at the White House, touring in a number of countries and across the United States and most recently hitting number one on the Billboard Kid Album chart. With over 4 million subscribers on YouTube One Voice Children’s Choir has become a household name for dynamic original arrangements of popular music. The group’s music has been picked up by HBO, Nickelodeon, Netflix, The Today Show, PBS, and radio stations and playlists around the world. One Voice Children’s Choir is part of One Voice Children 501c3, a nonprofit organization with a mission to inspire the world through the power of children’s voices.

One Voice Children’s Choir (originally known as the 2002 Winter Olympic Children’s Choir and Studio A Children’s Choir) is an American children’s choir in Utah.

The group was founded by Masa Fukuda in 2001 after he composed the song “It Just Takes Love” for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah. He asked students to help make a commemorative CD for the Olympics. Some of the students also were “children of light” performers for the Olympics, whom he volunteered to help train. After the Olympics, 25 students wanted to continue singing together, and Fukuda formed the choir as a nonprofit organization to continue working with them.

One Voice is led by director Fukuda and has 140 members ages 4–18. Every year, the choir performs around 50 to 70 times. The group meets year-round for once-a-week practices. They perform a vast selection of music such as pop, gospel, classical, Broadway, and patriotic.

In 2003, the choir sang the Christmas song “Innocence of Youth” and won the John Lennon International Music Award after singing in a competition for Yoko Ono. In 2014, One Voice received national attention for their rendition of the Disney song “Let It Go”, starring Lexi Walker and Alex Boyé. Their video received 1 million views in one day, 18 million in 10 days, and over 60 million by July 2015. They were invited to compete in the ninth season of America’s Got Talent (AGT) in 2014 and reached the quarterfinals.
