Recently, Voices of Service, who presented themselves as veteran and active-duty service members, had an unexpected surprise for the judges — Simon Cowell, Julianne Hough, Gabrielle Union, and Howie Mandel — and the audience.

"We would sit around and start singing, and that would help us get over that we went through that day.

They were all pleased as soon as the four gifted vocalists began singing and belting out Katy Perry's "Rise" during the auditions of “America's Got Talent." The group received a standing ovation from the audience and all four judges.

Judge Union said:

"What you guys are doing. The song, your voices, your ability, I can't thank you enough for all of it. Thank you."

Prior to their incredible performance, one of the members said:

"We're using this platform to show what music can do as music therapy for service men and women who are coping with post-traumatic stress, and we just love what we do."

In a segment ahead of the performance, the group explained how music brought them together after experiences as members of the military in wartime. One of the members shared:

"Every day of your life that you spent there, (you) had to make it your best because one day you could be having lunch with one of (your) battle buddies and the next they could be gone, so those thoughts ring through all of our minds."

"We would sit around and start singing, and that would help us get over that we went through that day. You know, just bring a sense of hope to the lost that we dealt with.... the bond of music got us through it all."

Another member added:

"To have this opportunity, it reminds you what a great country we do live in... And it's for those people, for those men and women, who have given the ultimate sacrifice, that I stand on the stage and sing tonight."

The talented singers received four yeses from the judges’ votes and will move on to the next round of the competition.
