Congratulations to the St. Mark Sanctuary Choir, this year’s winner of Verizon’s “How Sweet The Sound” choir competition. The grand finale was held Saturday, November 2, at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. St. Mark Sanctuary Choir is from Little Rock’s St. Mark Baptist Church.
No strangers to the choir contest, the choir earned the top spot in the Memphis regional in 2010 and the Dallas regional in 2012. This year, St. Mark again won the Dallas regional in order to advance to the finals. See that performance below.
