Editor's Note: AYO returns to the Hughes Brothers Theatre for its third, exciting year! See them starting March 9th, 2015!
"Ayo starring Voices of Glory" kicks off its first season in Branson at the Hughes Brothers Theatre on Monday, March 18, 2013, at 3:00pm. The new show stars some very famous siblings, Michael, Avery, and Nadia Cole, who together are known as Voices of Glory. Ayo (Yoruba for Joy) is being co-produced by the Hughes Brothers who are known for their creative productions including the show "it" and the "Hughes Brothers Christmas Show". Jason Hughes says, “In 'Ayo' we’re taking the audience on a journey of joy using song, dance, lights, and the personalities of Michael, Avery, and Nadia, backed up by a live band.” Michael Cole adds, “We love the music and we love what music can do for people. In 'Ayo' we want the audience to feel what we feel when we sing – a pure call to joy!” Shows are from March through December, check schedule for exact dates and specific show times.

Nadia Cole says, “'Ayo' adds another level to the Branson show mix. While Ayo features our original music, and of course our gospel favorites, it also reaches out to visitors of all ages with current and familiar songs that speak to the musical soul.” Avery Cole adds, “Ayo is also a slang term for ‘Hey you’…and we’re hoping that just like that term reaches out and grabs your attention…that Ayo will reach out and grab your heart!”
Long time fans of the Voices of Glory are familiar with their amazing story. They first started singing together in a hospital room for their mother who was in a coma brought on by a head-on collision with a drunk driver. The kids serenaded their mother for months and then she came out of her coma. They continued to visit hospitals singing for others who were in need. Then they appeared on America’s Got Talent in 2009 – where their audition in front of the live audience was awe-inspiring. Their eventual rank in the top 5 catapulted them into major appearances and touring internationally. They most recently appeared in Branson as a featured act in Andy Williams Christmas Show. Their most recent international appearance took them to Germany for Weihnachtszauber. Of their many charitable and recording projects, their most current project - a new album called “Send-A-Miracle” - will be available on March 1 and includes some of their own original music.
Jeff Topper, Director of Sales for the Hughes Brothers Theatre says, “All of the shows at our theater are really designed for today’s audiences. At the Hughes Brothers Theatre we’re already open with our hit show it and we’re excited about adding another upbeat show like "Ayo starring Voices of Glory" to our theatre line-up.” Voices of Glory’s management team – their parents Michael and Felicia Cole, and Uncle Gerard – add that “we believe the Hughes Brothers Theatre in Branson, MO is the perfect fit for the Voices of Glory.”
The Voices of Glory are a group of siblings (Michael, Avery, & Nadia Cole) whose unique style of singing harmonies, pitch perfect sound, and shining personalities have led to some amazing success at a young age. From landing in the top 5 of America’s Got Talent in 2009 to touring internationally, performing at the Annual GMA’s Dove Awards, the 2010 & 2011 ICM Awards, at Madison Square, to being a featured act in Andy Williams 2012 Christmas Show and now to their own show, Ayo, in Branson, Missouri, the Voices of Glory have inspired millions with their personal story. They started to sing together in 2007 when their mother was in a coma brought on by a head-on collision with a drunk driver. For months they serenaded their mother and she eventually came out of a coma. TheVoicesOfGlory.com
