Gospel music is powerful, mighty, and meaningful. Gospel music is what touches your soul and moves you to sing straight from your heart. Gospel music is your ministry. The How Sweet the Sound™ family knows why you sing and understands why the message must be shared. That’s why we want to invite you to be a part of Verizon’s How Sweet the Sound 2011. Registration is now open with new-for-2011 registration features, audition songs and online voting enhancements.

A Personal Message from Grammy Award Winner, Fred Hammond
Dear Choirs, Directors, and Musicians, As a musician and National Gospel Artist, I understand that we’ve been taught in the church that we’re not to be competitive when it comes to singing for God. While that is true, there is a ministry of music story that must be told to the world. Sometimes that means we must come out of our weekly choir stand to do that. Verizon Wireless has created an opportunity for your choir to be part of a national event that has helped churches across America expand their ministries. The Verizon How Sweet the Sound™ Experience gives national exposure to choirs across America bringing glory to God through song! Participating in How Sweet the Sound will help your choir develop and grow in new and creative ways. There is also great potential for growth in the community. How Sweet the Sound was created so you could bring God’s message to believers and non-believers alike. This experience is unlike anything your choir will ever do.
I appeal to all choirs across America to register, start working on your sound, and giving God their best in 2011!
National Gospel Artist and Judge for Verizon Wireless, How Sweet The Sound
