The next stop for the How Sweet The Sound Gospel competition is Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena on Saturday, September 15th. We’re almost to the grand finale! The big winner will be selected November 4th in Brooklyn, N.Y.
In the Fox News video below competition judge VaShawn Mitchell (luv the shirt, VaShawn!) talks about the popular event and the Emmy Award winning choir Selected of God performs the song “My Status Is Changing.”
The choir received $10,000 and other prizes and will go on to represent the Atlanta area at the grand finale in Brooklyn. The first runner up prize of $5,000 was awarded to Out For Souls, led by Cedric Sesley. Atlanta West Pentecostal Church Choir also won Verizon’s People’s Choice Award and $5,000.
