On November 13, 2010 at the Verizon center in Washington, D.C., CeCe Winans along with Donald Lawrence will serve as Hosts for the Grand Finale of “How Sweet the Sound”. “Often referred to as the “American Idol” for church choirs, with a strong focus on celebrating the Gospel community, the program features exceptional talent with both the church choirs who compete and perform as well as the acclaimed Gospel giants who serve as hosts, judges and performers. Winning choirs representing 14 cities around the country will come together for an unforgettable night of joy and praise as they vie for the title of “The Best Church Choir in America.”
“Throughout the program Verizon Wireless collected 11,250 used phones to refurbish and uses all proceeds to benefit victims of domestic violence. A check for $50,000 will be presented to the Institute on Domestic Violence in the African American Community at the November 13th finale.”
I had a chance to interview the beautiful and talented CeCe Winans about the show. See the Live Video interview below:
