Having the priviledge of being a member of VOICES OF THE HEART led all of these wonderful and talented young women on a journey that
would influence their lives forever and give them cherished memories of amazing moments of stage in concert and at The Heart of CHristmas SHow
to help children! Here you will find important information regarding concerts dates and all information regarding
The Heart of Christmas Show!
Voices of the Heart began in 1997 as a teaching outlet for vocal performance coach, Laura Stevens. 8 young talented students ages 11-15 were chosen to begin the journey of Voices of the Heart. In the fall of 1999 the group entered into a national gospel competition and won the best overall award competing against 200+ adult acts. This accomplishment allowed the group to be taken seriously, even though the ages in the group were quite young. On their return to their hometown in Fayetteville, North Carolina, the group and their director decided to use the publicity they received from winning the competition to create a Christmas show on the style of those seen at Myrtle Beach, SC. and Branson Mi. The difference would be that only young adults would perform in the show, that it would have a strong Christian message and that it would raise money to help sick and abused children in the city and surrounding areas. The Heart of Christmas Show was born with a motto of Children helping children…
To date, the show has raised over 300,000.00 dollars to help benefit the lives of children.
This is transient group with members aging out and young new comers anxiously awaiting for a spot to open for them to come in.
