Acme Missionary Baptist Church - Overview:

The Acme Missionary Baptist Church, located on Chicago's south side, won national acclaim in 2008 when they beat ten other choirs from around the country to win the Verizon Wireless Best Church Choir in America.

Choir director Janet Sutton rearranged the hymn "'Tis So Sweet" and led her 45-member choir in mastering her original arrangement. They were the last to perform at the finals in Atlanta, but they came up first.

Sutton said, "The City of Chicago has really been wonderful in appreciating and celebrating what we've done." They opened Gospel Fest in 2009 and recorded a live album in July.
