Southwestern Christian University’s premiere performance arts team,One Voice,have recorded tracks for what will be the group’s first album in nearly a decade.
Former One Voice member Kenny Moore provided his talents in recording the group’s six-song extended play album. Moore is one of the Pastors at Connection Church in Midwest City.
One Voice, which is under the direction of Taylor Drake, M.A. is a ministry that allows students to mold their talents and love of music into a powerful vocal group. The group tours throughout the year leading worship across the country at churches, camps and a number of other functions as well. Often times, the group will serve as ambassadors for SCU counseling and ministering in a number of different venues
The album, which is late January release, had its cover work designed by both Drake and SCU employee Marcellus Coleman.
Members of One Voice are as follows:

"We have a great group of students,” Drake said. “After 24 hours of studio time, we are all thrilled with what we have produced and can't wait for past and future One Voice (formerly Great Life Singers) alumni to see and hear what we have created. It was a wonderful experience since none of the students had ever been inside a recording studio. I am proud of them, and their university will be as well."
