How Sweet The Sound 2010Published by Torrence Glenn on Friday, June 4, 2010 at 12:12 pm.
Sup folks, just letting you know that Verizon’s “How Sweet The Sound” deadline for entries is coming up soon. They’re looking for the best church choir in America and I’ve been to some of you guys’ churches, y’all have some good ones. You have until Monday, June 7th to register your church choir. So what that means is if you want to enter, you need to get your choir together THIS WEEKEND and make your video and register! Hey, do it in Sunday morning service if you have to, but it’s time to get it done. I’m a big “choir head” so I’ve been following this competition for the last few years and it keeps getting better and better.
I understand that Donald Lawrence is back this year to host along with Cece Winans. That should be good!
All the rules, regulations and all that jazz are on the website.
Well, since I have to rep my city (NYC), check out the New York area regional winning choir’s video. The Marble Collegiate Church choir did a version of Richard Smallwood & Vision’s “Total Praise.” Love the “flavor” of this choir. It’s a perfect balance of squall and classical touches and STILL multicultural. Now there are some shenanigans the director did at the end and some odd changes to the “arrangement” there that were just ummm not good, but overall they’re still pretty dope. Watch!
