Choirs For How Sweet The Sound 2012

Alright, just a few months to go before choirs from all over the country hit the stage to compete during the 2012 Verizon How Sweet The Sound gospel competition for the title of THE BEST GOSPEL CHOIR IN AMERICA!

They’ll compete for a chance to share more than $50,000 in cash prizes and advance to the grand finale in New York City on November 4th.

Donald Lawrence and Yolanda Adams will serve as hosts this year. CeCe Winans , Erica Campbell, Fred Hammond, Hezekiah Walker and VaShawn Mitchell will serve as judges and perform on stage, alongside Lawrence and Adams at the regional shows.

While we understand that winning doesn’t determine whether or not you are loved by GOd or anointed…we do understand that this is a competition and that they have to choose a winner. With that said…congratulations to everyone who was chosen thus far.
