Three friends had been individually toying with the idea of forming performing groups in late 2022 when a series of conversations brought them together and led to the creation of Heart & Voice.
They each had one thing in common: they wanted to use the power of music and dance to bring people closer to Jesus Christ.
We inspire discipleship by praising the Lord with heart and voice, praising His name in the dance, and encircling others in the arms of His love.
We aspire to become known throughout the world as the show choir that brings others to Jesus Christ.
The scriptures repeatedly invite the Lord's disciples to praise Him in song—and the Lord has said that the song of the righteous is a prayer unto Him. (Hymns, 73)
Joyful movement can be just as worshipful as joyful noise! Dancing allows us to use our entire beings to praise God and His goodness. (Psalm 149:3)
Performing on a stage is only a small part of what we do. The rest of our ministry happens off the stage, when we interact with others and spread the light of Christ. (2 Nephi 1:15)
