OVation is the portable version of One Voice—a small ensemble of
13 singers that bring One Voice’s music and our message almost
anywhere. OVation performs at 12-15 events annually, with One Voice
or on its own, at venues ranging from the Minnesota State Fair, Twin
Cities Pride, places of worship and MN-United events!
One of the singers’ favorite gigs is personalized performances delivered by phone. Each year OVation honors Valentine’s Day by performing live serenades. These “singing telegrams” are a big hit with our supporters, too:
“I just had to tell you what a wonderful experience I had sending one of your singing Val-o-grams to my niece. First, thank you for offering non-romantic songs so I could send her a day brightener! I chose Everything Possible and she LOVED it! She had sung the song at a women’s group camp through her church a few years back, and it just unleashed a flood of wonderful emotions. My niece was just in tears the whole time and blesses you all, over and over again!”
