AMERICA'S GOT TALENT Stars Voices of Service Releases First Video From Debut EP

"Let Me Raise My Voice," comes out tomorrow at 12noon EDST.

Voices of Service are releasing the first video from their debut EP Rise "Let Me Raise My Voice," Thursday, August 27 at 12noon EDST. The EP was produced by David "DQ"

Quinones (Beyonce, David Guetta, Nicki Minaj, Usher...) and Johnny Black (Grey's Anatomy, Dancing With The Stars...) VOS is a vocal quartet comprising two retired and two active members of the U.S. Army: Caleb Green, Ron Henry, Christal Rheams and Jason Hanna respectively. This foursome successfully competed in Season 14 of America's Got Talent, placing fifth. Rise is being issued as a digital download via online retailers and major streaming platforms. I hope you'll consider covering this release with a feature interview or EP review; let me know if you need a DL or stream. View the video here: . Feel free to repost; embed code available upon request.

"Let Me Raise My Voice" is a new original written by all four band members along with DQ and Johnny Black. THE EP also features their interpretations of songs made popular by Katy Perry ("Rise"), One Republic ("Choke") and Kodaline ("Brother"). Vocal tracks were recorded at Arlington, VA's famed Inner Ear studios (which had its own episode in Dave Grohl's Sonic Highways documentary series). Instrumental tracks were laid down by Johnny Black in Nashville with CAMMO member Mike Hamilton adding drums to "Raise Your Voice" in Arlington. All four performances are uplifting and inspirational. As group member Hanna notes, it's, "Music that you can feel down to your soul."

Voices of Service are a part of the nonprofit Center for American Military Music Opportunities (CAMMO). For the past seven years, they have utilized their performances to increase awareness of the therapeutic impact that performing as well as listening to music can have on service men and women who are coping with post-traumatic stress and other invisible/visible wounds. Their success on America's Got Talent helped promote national awareness of the struggle active members of the Armed Forces, veterans and their families often experience during as well as after their service.

Green, Henry, Rheams and Hanna had all been working with CAMMO in different capacities when they were invited to perform the National Anthem with a choir as part of ceremonies held at the Women In Military Service for America Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery. They would be part of many more performances at events CAMMO participated in, and the chemistry between these four in particular sparked, then blossomed until it was undeniable and VOS.

All four have been involved with CAMMO's many service programs which include hospital outreach programs: delivering Music as Therapy for servicemen and women who are coping with post-traumatic stress, and traumatic brain injury, (one of Henry's duties); CAMMO Kids (of which Rheams is Director); Life Support Coaching (one of Hanna's roles); providing CAMMO performers to participate in appropriate public events (Green is brand ambassador for events and partnerships); songwriting workshops; musical mentoring; and many more. A percentage of their performance fees are donated to support CAMMO's various programs.
