"Being on America's Got Talent - that was Radio City Music Hall so it really doesn't get much bigger than that," said Dequan Mitchell. "Everything else is kind of a little more fun and not so stressful because that one was live."

Dorene Collier, who helped form the group with her technical director A.J. LeBlanc, says they are getting calls from around the World now.

"To get this product launched...to get it to be seen internationally to our client base, which we did a lot of corporate entertainment, this was a perfect vehicle," Collier said.

Since AGT, TellAVision has performed on the Rachael Ray Show and more recently at a California event for the Dream Foundation as Barry Manilow sang with them.

"It's weird - people know us when we go places, when we go to events and functions," LeBlanc said. "People call the shop nonstop, internationally, from Dubai to Australia, Mexico."
