Voices of the Heart has always been a group that was created to give many wonderful, talented young ladies an outlet for their talent and a opportunity to serve God with their talents and do something good for others. Over the years, many girls have passed through this experience as it was never the intention for just one set of girls to be Voices of the Heart. I want to offer this amazing journey to any and all who are talented enough in the area of singing and dancing and who would be willing to be dedicated themselves to this mission and it's lifestyle. I am excited about this group of Voices of the Heart. These 6 girls offer a rare thing...beauty on the inside as well as the outside. No doubt this will be an exceptional group in talent but it will be remembered as a good hearted and kind group of girls who showed love and expressed kindness to all. They all have relationships with the Lord in ways that I am excited about for this group and for each of them. It's hard to live as a Christian Teenager in the current society and it is very difficult to pass and maintain the requirements of a VOH girl.Very hard. I applaude these 7 precious young ladies in their efforts to live a lifestyle that shines bright for the Lord! I look forward to the 2012-2013 season with this special group of girls!
I congratulate these special girls and their families, in becoming members of the 2012 VOICES OF THE HEART !
We have a heavenly assignment to do and we serve Him gladly with what He has given us!

Hannah Godbold 17
Hannah has been a special addition to our group! Her beautiful,dark voice is a great addition to our sound. She can sing any part but sings Soprano for the group. She brought her gift of drama and her beautiful voice to the Heart of Christmas last year in special ways as she was Mary Poppins visiting the North Pole! She brings such a sweet, gentle and loving spirit with her every time she walks into a room. She quickly learns harmonies and choreography and has stepped into the performance light with energy and charisma! Her leadership skills have developed so much she truly has what it takes to have her own show some day! She is a hard worker behind the scenes and has helped me this past year so much!
I appreciate her work ethic at such a young age.
Beautiful on the inside even more than the outside...We look forward to our last year with Hannah as she is a Senior this year and leaves us in the fall of 2013. Her contribution to this group and to me have been huge... It will be hard to let her journey on.
Katelyn Godbold 16
Sister to Hannah, She brings to us her own fun spirit coupled with her sensibility and maturity! She is a strong Christian and has clarity of thinking when it comes to issues of right and wrong. Bold in spirit, funny and a joy to be around. Katelyn sings soprano for us and delivers soprano with a powerful tone and range. Her ablity to express on stage the song that she is singing is truly inspirational to all. She feels every word she sings and means what she feels and expresses. Unique , funny, talented and beautiful is Katelyn Godbold.
She has a beautiful, strong voice and her dancing skills are wonderful! She is beginning to step into her leadership skills and what a great leader she will make! She journeys with us for a couple of more years and we are grateful for that!
The Godbold sisters are a true blessing to have in our group!
VOH Member Bios for 2012-2013
Hannah Pritchard 14
Hannah Pritchard is one of those amazingly talented people that all of us wish we could have a small dose of her huge gift. She can sing any vocal part needed. She sings tenor for us but she has one of the biggest ranges of any student I have ever taught. Her head tone clarity and power and range would give Sarah Brightman a challenge! She was unusually young to become aVOH girl! In 12 years of the groups existence only 4 girls have gone in under the age of 12! She entered the group at 11 years old! She comes from a blessed legacy of talent in her family but talent can't survive all by itself, it takes dedication and hard work to develop it into something great! Hannah set her own goal of becoming a VOH member early and she accomplished that! She has a natural gift with choreograpy and stepped into her leadership abilities at camp this year. She has huge stage performance skills along with a refreshing energy and passion for singing. She loves to sing!
She is also a very talented with drawing and creating beautiful pictures!
She has such great talent and enthusiasm and we feel very blessed as Hannah continue with us
for a few more years.. Very blessed indeed.

Taylor Bridges, Kaylan Sinclair and Ashlyn Hall Congratulations girls!
Taylor Bridges 16
Newcomer Taylor Bridges brings so many gifts to Voices of the Heart. Her smile alone can brighten up your day! She has a beautiful voice and sings tenor for us in the group. A great perfomer, singer, dancer. Taylor has a humble spirit to be so gifted and we are grateful that she has joined the team. She has been a cast member of the Heart of Christmas Show for a few years now dancing with Voices of the Heart in several numbers so she was like wearing a comfortable shoe when she came into the group. We just love her cause she's just such a nice young lady. Her family is onboard and so helpful and we look forward to the next 2 years we get to have her as a member of Voices of the Heart!
Kaylan Sinclair 16
New addition, Kaylan Sinclair, came to a summer camp in 2011 and we just fell in love with her! She can dance and sing and most of all she is just about the sweetest, most humble person, you could ever meet! She joined us as a cast member for The Heart of Christmas Show last year and it just seem natural to add her to Voices of the Heart. Rare is an entrance into the group so quickly achieved but Kaylan has the right attitude, talent and family to be the wonderful addition to the group that she is. She has a beatiful voice and will be singing Alto in the group.We look forward to the next couple of years with her as we watch this opportunity grow her talent to even greater levels than it already is.
Ashlyn Hall 13
Ashlyn is our youngest member but she has been around for quite a few years! At 10, she sang Don't Save It All For Christmas Day at the Heart of Christmas Show and it was an unbelievable performance from such a young girl! She is a powerful, blended singer and she will be singing soprano in the group . Watch out for this quiet girl that is a powerhouse singer! She just keeps getting better and better! She enters the group quite young but has already proven that she makes a great addition to Voices of the Heart. She has stepped up in the area of dancing to learn the difficult art of singing with choreography that the group has come to be known for. We are proud of her effort and her talent and can't wait to see how her talent develops across the next few years! Her family is 100% onboard making Ashlyn a great choice to beging her journey with
Voices of the Heart and the Heart of Christmas Show!
