One Voice Children’s Choir (originally known as the 2002 Winter Olympic Children’s Choir and Studio A Children’s Choir) is an American children’s choir from Utah. The group was founded by Masa Fukuda in 2001 after he wrote the song “It Just Takes Love” for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah. He asked students to help make a commemorative CD for the Olympics.
Some of the students were also “children of light” at the Olympics, whom he volunteered to help train. After the Olympics, 25 students wanted to continue singing together, and Fukuda formed the choir as a non-profit organization to continue working with them.
One Voice is led by director Fukuda and has 140 members aged 4 to 18. The choir performs 50 to 70 times a year. The group meets all year round for training once a week. They perform a wide variety of music such as pop, gospel, classical, Broadway and patriotic. In 2003, the choir sang the Christmas song “Innocence of Youth” and received the John Lennon
International Music Award after performing in the Yoko Ono Competition. In 2014, One Voice gained national attention with their performance of the Disney song “Let It Go”, starring Lexi Walker and Alex Boye. Their video reached 1 million views in one day, 18 million in 10 days, and over 60 million by July 2015. They were invited to participate in the ninth season of America’s Got Talent (AGT) in 2014 and made it to the quarterfinals.
