SCU’s One Voice to be featured on TBN’s Praise the Lord

A group of Southwestern Christian University students and administrators were featured on the Friday, March 22, 2013, edition of TBN’s Praise the Lord. One Voice, the traveling vocal group that has been a part of the SCU student body for over a decade, was featured on the show after recording the special last week.

The show, which is hosted by Tony Miller, head pastor of The Gate Church, featured two performances by One Voice, as well as interviews with University President, Dr. Ed Huckeby, and Vice President of University Development and Advancement, Rev. Kevin Richardson.

“This was a tremendous opportunity for us to promote our university and share our vision for SCU,” Huckeby said. “While we were recording this episode, another musical group from our university was leading worship at Oklahoma Christian School’s chapel in Edmond. It really is just a testament to our students and the way they are using their gifts and abilities.”

One Voice is a student-led vocal group that travels and performs at churches, camps and a number of other functions. Often times, the students will also serve as counselors at the camps as a way to further serve as ambassadors for SCU. As Dr. Huckeby points out, while the students have grown accustomed to performing, recording for a television special was a unique experience for most of them.

“Recording for the show gave the students in One Voice a unique opportunity to do in-studio recording,” Huckeby said. “Most of them had never done that, so it was exciting for them to see all the work and procedures that go into that process.”

The episode of Praise the Lord featuring One Voice aired Friday morning, March 22, at 10:30am CST on KTBO Oklahoma City (Cox Ch. 23).
