One Voice, the a cappella group from Briarcrest Christian School is gaining national attention.

Singer Anna Jones described it as an emotional experience.

"I just remember singing on that stage and just feeling this huge rush of adrenaline, rush of energy,” Jones said.

Their song “Who Are You” has been getting attention and teachers said it seems like overnight the Briarcrest video went viral.

"I went to bed and woke up and it had gotten on Buzzfeed,” said Briarcrest Director of Fine Arts J.D. Frizzell. “So of course I run to my computer and I look, and its out and people are sharing it everywhere.”

Several months ago, the group was involved in an  a cappella concert at Graceland. The experience put them in touch with Sony records and a recording contract to go along with a long list of awards and performance trophies the group has earned.

"How many high school kids get to say they are a Sony recording artist?” Frizzell asked.

"God has blessed me so much with this opportunity,” Jones said. “And I'm real happy that the world can see it now on Buzzfeed, on Facebook and any kind of social media outlet possible."
