Washington Capitals’ anthem singer Caleb Green has made it through to America’s Got Talent’s Season 14 quarterfinals after another tear-jerking performance with his singing group, “Voices of Service.” The four-member ensemble is made up of entirely of veterans and active-duty service members between the ages of 45 and 54.
During the Judges’ Cuts show featuring celebrity judge Jay Leno, Voices of Service performed a goosebumps-inspiring version of Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s See You Again. “This is dedicated to our brothers and sisters who have been silenced and could not find peace on this side,” Sgt. Maj. Christal Rheams said before they performed. They received a standing ovation when they were finished.
“They’re really good,” a floored Simon Cowell said in passing to Julianne Hough.
The group consists of retired Master Sgt. Caleb Green, Sgt. Maj. Christal Rheams, Staff Sgt. Ron Henry, and Sergeant First Class Jason Hanna. During their debut performance aired in mid-June, the group sang Katy Perry’s Rise, blowing the judges and audience away with their talent.
“We really, really like you guys as people. All of your voices are amazing,” Cowell said on Tuesday night when addressing the group. He was particularly impressed by Rheams’ beautiful voice, but added, “If you make it through to the next round, you need to do something to top that.”

Julianne Hough made the announcement after a long, dramatic pause. “Y’all are through! We are SO SO proud of you and we need more. We need more!”
“You almost gave me a heart attack,” Cowell said grabbing his chest.
From everyone at RMNB, we extend our heartfelt congratulations to Caleb, who we’ve always known is a true superstar on and off the ice.
