After the overwhelming reception last year, Verizon Wireless returns with How Sweet The Sound, the search for the best gospel music choir in America. Host Donald Lawrence and Marvin Sapp will be returning for 2009. Last year eleven gospel choirs from around the country came together for a remarkable finale in Atlanta, winning cash and prizes for their respective churches totaling over $50,000. Acme Missionary Baptist Church from Chicago, Illinois was the grand finale winner of $25,000, which their Pastor Bernard Sutton said would help build the congregation a new sanctuary.
How Sweet the Sound is a celebration of church music, all church music, sung the way only a church choir can sing it. So bring your traditional, contemporary, and everything in between - we want to hear what you’ve got to sing.
