Hello Sunday: An AGI Brand.
This young duo pairs up fiery talent synergy with an essense of innocence, generating a performance atmosphere that both inspires and entertains. As their name suggests, these girls serve up -in song- the warm feeling a friendly greeting or a blessed Sunday afternoon affords.
Hello Sunday’s Myla Finks and Chelsea Glover, made their national debut on NBC’s Season 17 of The Voice, when they received an enthusiastic chair turn from Kelly Clarkson. This initial confidence launched Hello Sunday into becoming the record-breaking sensation they’ve become.

As their journey continued on, they brought both Taylor Swift and Kelly Clarkson to tears with their performances, gained the very first ‘Wild Card Save’ by popular vote from The Voice’s audience and advanced through to being promoted to the coveted Top 8 Semi-Finals.
Hello Sunday’s brand, the brain child of AGI’s Creative Director, Brandin Jay and AGI’s CEO, ‘The Starmaker’, Natarsha Garcia was given life by Myla and Chelsea.

Hello, World! Meet ‘Hello Sunday’!
JON “KING AVERY”
As a child, Jon Avery dreaded the idea of singing. “I hated my voice, couldn’t stand the way I sounded,” he remembers. A visit from his late grandfather, however, changed the course of his life. “The week before he passed away, my Grandpa came to visit and I put on a mini show for him, singing Michael Jackson songs,” says Avery. “He was the first person who told me I was destined to be a star. He said, “You need to do this.” I said, ‘All right.’ And I never gave it up.
A Queens, New York native, Jon took no shortcuts on honing his craft starting with enrolling at AGI Entertainment. At AGI, he trained in singing, acting, and several forms of dance ( hop-hop, jazz, modern and house ). Although Jon has embraced Atlanta as his home, he still views himself as a southside kid with a northside heart.
Jon has experienced some bumps in the road to stardom, yet he is optimistic and confident that his gifts will make room for him. “I’ve wanted to quit many times when opportunities with shows like The X Factor, American Idol, and The Voice has been promising but didn’t pan out. But I am not waiting on someone to tell me when I can be great. I want to take my God given gifts and create my own work. That’s my mission.”
