The only vocal group Elvis Presley ever called his own was VOICE, which was organized and developed by Sherrill Nielsen. Sherrill Nielsen was a renowned 50 year veteran in the world of Southern Gospel Music. He wrote: “I first organized the group in the 1970's. Elvis gave us the name VOICE from a Christian periodical he had read. For several years we opened all of Elvis’ concerts. Elvis may have left the building, but his VOICE is still here.” Summarizing their talent and commitment to excellence; love and appreciation for an audience is an analogy for “The Impossible Dream,” and must be experienced to be understood. On the back of Sherrill's first paycheck Elvis wrote, "God loves you, but He loves you best when you sing." The same could have also been said of VOICE. Sherrill Nielsen, Donnie Sumner and Tim Baty were always dedicated to the golden sounds of what Southern Gospel Music is truly all about. New groups are constantly coming on the scene, but VOICE will always be remembered for providing the old Southern Gospel music; its harmony, message and sound – the timeless classics. In March of 2010, The Southern Gospel News reported “Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame recipient, Sherrill Nielsen, has been diagnosed with lung cancer. Sherrill and Brenda were performing in Europe when they found a blood clot in his leg. They flew home to Alabama, where he developed pneumonia." After undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments for a long period of time, Sherrill passed away at 11:06 am on December 10, 2010 in Cullman, AL. He was a Living Legend Award recipient; was the original tenor with the Imperials and his tenure in Southern Gospel music included groups such as Masters V, Hovie Lister & the Statesmen, Speer Family, Songfellows and the Plainsmen. Brenda has health insurance, but it will not cover everything and those uninsured medical expenses will continue to soar, as will many other expenses. This presents her with a serious financial problem because they were unable to perform and earn an income since the first of 2010. Therefore, Adonda Records and HTi Music have determined to give 100% of the profits from the sale of this CD to Brenda to help defer some of those medical and other costs. Including this album, other Adonda albums available on from which the profits will benefit Brenda are: DISTILLED GOSPEL (Sherrill Nielsen & Voice); SHOUT HALLELUJAH (Sherrill Nielsen & Voice); VOICE REUNITES (Sherrill Nielsen & Voice); and SHERRILL NIELSEN & FRIENDS (Jerry Deewood). You can help: 1. By praying for Brenda 2. By downloading this album 3. By spreading the word to others HOWEVER, THE MOST NEEDFUL AND BEST WAY TO HELP IS BY SENDING DONATIONS (AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE) DIRECTLY TO BRENDA NIELSEN. She recently moved from Alabama to Texas to be near the grave of Sherrill and daughter SherRee'. Her new address: P.O. Box 9565, Tyler, Texas 75711.
