Now, everyone knows that in addition to being the Gospel Music Capital of the World, Chicago is a Church Choir City, having produced the likes of Dr. Charles G. Hayes and Cosmopolitan Church of Prayer Choir, Apostle Donald Alford and the Progressive Radio Choir, Pastor Smokie Norful's Victory Cathedral Choir, the Reeds Temple Church of God in Christ Choir and last but not least, the very first How Sweet The Sound competition winner, Janet Sutton and the Voices of Acme. Need I say any more?
Karen echoed her sister's words, sharing stories from the early days in ministry at Greater Emmanuel Church of God in Christ, the church pastored by her husband, Bishop J. Drew Sheard. Karen said that she was always a "hands on pastor's wife", working with the choir as well as playing the organ. Teaming up with the resident judge Pastor Marvin Sapp, the judges took their places and the evening got into high gear.
And the PRAISE BEGAN. In between the choir performances, the audience was treated to performances from each judge and also CeCe Winans. If there were a competition between them, a tie would have to be called. The audience didn't leave the United Center without getting back "everything that the devil stole" and knowing that God sees the "best in us". As if that wasn't enough, Marvin Sapp wreaked additional havoc on the place with "Never Could Have Made It". After everyone settled, it was time to pick a winner.
Taking home the titles were the Redeemed Tabernacle Choir in the small choir category and the Greater First Church Choir in People's Choice, Hopeline and Chicago Overall Winner categories.
