The Atlanta West Pentecostal Church choir

An Atlanta church choir has earned the title of "Best Church Choir in America" as part of Verizon Wireless' "How Sweet the Sound: The Search for the Best Church Choir in America" competition.

The Atlanta West Pentecostal Church choir won the title Saturday at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. The choir also walked away with $30,000.

The second annual How Sweet the Sound finale brought together the best church choirs from 11 cities across the nation. Gospel music celebrities judged and hosted the event. The choir will use the prize money to record a live CD in 2010.
