Branson is home to a number of performing families, and AYO-Voices of Glory is the perfect showcase for the talented Cole family. Sister and brothers Nadia, Michael, and Avery Cole bring their powerhouse vocals and unique musical style to a variety of pop, gospel, and soul numbers. During their show, this musical family trio tells the story of how they began singing together after a terrifying car accident that almost claimed the life of their mother, Felicia. The siblings began singing at Felicia’s bedside during her 8-day long coma and, after she thankfully recovered, they decided to share their God-given musical talents with hospital patients and residents of nursing homes. What began as a simple mission to bring hope to the hurting has turned into a full-fledged musical career with a successful run on America’s Got Talent and performances at the Dove Awards and Madison Square Garden. Since 2012, the family has performed in Branson, and their inspiring, masterful vocals and powerful story of hope has made them a local favorite. The musical Cole family fills their audiences with joy at every show!
Branson is known for its live music shows, but it’s also home to several mind-blowing magic shows. Taylor Reed is one of Branson’s resident magicians, and his family-friendly show plays regularly at the Jim Stafford Theater. This acclaimed illusionist amazed audiences during his time on America’s Got Talent and has traveled the country for 15 years with his high-octane show. Taylor recently moved from Las Vegas to Branson after a successful stint headlining his own show, and Branson audiences immediately embraced his brand of family-friendly magic and illusions. His exciting and fun-filled act incorporates stunning sets and costumes, fire eating, and combines heartwarming stories with each illusion for a personal experience unlike any other. There’s a trained poodle who “assists” him on some illusions and, on select dates, Taylor’s talented children even join in the fun. After each show, Taylor greets his audience in the lobby to sign autographs and pose for pictures. You won’t want to miss this one-of-a-kind magic show!
