In 2017, OneVoice performed at The London A Cappella Festival alongside The Swingles and VOCES8. In 2018, they opened again for The Swingles at Eastern Division ACDA.

Their albums, produced by Dave Sperandio of diovoce studios and Robert Dietz of Human-Feedback, have won accolades and entertained fans worldwide. They can be found on iTunes, Loudr, Spotify and Pandora. OneVoice’s recordings have been selected for four straight SING!
