Background:
This summer, Verizon Wireless is challenging church choirs from coast to coast to show off their pipes in the company's first nationwide How Sweet The Sound competition. Expanding upon last year's successful How Sweet The Sound event in Memphis, Tenn., Verizon Wireless is now giving choirs in 11 cities from coast to coast a chance to compete in the national grand finale for a cash prize of $25,000 and the title of the best choir in the U.S.

How Sweet The Sound is much more than a singing competition — it is an opportunity to celebrate the unique ways that music connects people within the community. All details can be found on Monday, June 30, on the Verizon Wireless official How Sweet The Sound Web site at www.howsweetthesound.com.
