Phone Company Seeking Entries For Church Choir Competition

March 24, 2010

Verizon Wireless’ How Sweet the Sound competition is back in 2010 to search for Houston’s best church choirs and to compete for the title of “The Best Church Choir in America.”

The winning choir will compete against other communities and win up to $50,000 in cash and prizes. Now in its third year, How Sweet the Sound is an opportunity to capture the passion for gospel music in Houston and to celebrate the unique ways that music connects people within their community.

Verizon Wireless will select a local Houston artist to represent their city during the How Sweet the Sound 2010 tour. The selected artists will create a custom fine art piece that pays tribute to the spirit of gospel music in their hometown.

Choirs must submit an application and audition video no longer than three minutes.  All registration forms and audition videos must be received by May 17. The audition video may be submitted by mail, uploaded online, or dropped off at participating Verizon Wireless Communications Stores. All details about the entry and selection process and official rules are available at
