Thanks to the great people of the DFW area alongside our esteemed hosts and judges and wonderful corporate sponsors Verizon and United Healthcare, the event was a resounding success.

CeCe Winans, Erica Campbell (of Mary Mary), Fred Hammond and Bishop Hezekiah Walker  were the judges of the first  date.

I understand the project you’re doing, “How Sweet the Sound” is something that’s been going on for a while. I would first of all like to talk with you for a moment about your role in this event.

CeCe: I’ve been involved with “How Sweet the Sound” for several years now. The first time they asked me, I was a judge for a few of the shows and I performed and really enjoyed it, as I felt they did it in a first class way.

It was a great chance to give choirs a platform of knowing that it was really the foundation of gospel music and gospel choirs. For the last three years I’ve been hosting / co-hosting with Donald Lawrence and had a great time doing that. This year I’m going back to judging and Yolanda is going to host the event.
