Everyone has coping mechanisms to get them through difficult times. For service men and women, those mechanisms are essential to their healing and health, particularly after tours of duty.
For the members of Voices of Service, that coping mechanism is singing. The four members of the group are all veterans or active duty and have found comfort in each other’s company – and in music.
The members of the group have used music and song as a way to help them deal with PTSD after active duty. Each one has spent time overseas and has lost people they love. Additionally, the group aims to spread hope to fellow service members (or anyone) who are struggling with mental health and looking for something to help them along their journey.
Recently, the Voices of Service auditioned for America’s Got Talent. The 4 members, Master Sgt. Caleb Green (the official Washington Capital’s anthem singer), Staff Sgt. Ron Henry, Sgt. Maj. Christal Rheams, and Sergeant First Class Jason Hanna shared their story with the judges.
It immediately struck a chord the judges without a single note.
“We want to spread a message of love and hope for everyone in America who is coping with any challenge in life to show what music can do.”
Once the music to Katy Perry’s “Rise” started playing, the crowd and judges perked up even more. Then, the quartet started to sing.
Each one of the members’ voices was uniquely beautiful – but together, they created a gorgeous harmony that would give even the most critical person goosebumps.
As the song went on, the crowd, and judge Gabrielle Union, rose to their feet to show their appreciation well before the end of the song.
The Voices of Service blew everyone away from start to finish. Their mission, voices, backgrounds, and harmonies left everyone rooting for them. It came as no surprise that the judges advanced them to the next stage in the competition.
