March 19, 2014 (Lincolnton, NC) ─ The Parker Family Singers have been performing Gospel music for the residents of Heath House, a DePaul Senior Living Community, for over five years.
“We call it a privilege to have the honor of singing to them and we pray the good lord will allow us the good health and ability to continue singing for many more years,” said Parker Family Singers group member Frank Hammett.

Jeff Parker of Maiden, North Carolina said the Parker Family Singers has been singing for about 10 years. Consisting of parishioners from various Baptist Churches, the group performs at six area nursing homes once a month, including Wexford House, a DePaul Senior Living Community in Denver, North Carolina. Frank Parker said the residents love singing along, especially to the older gospel songs.
“It’s a blessing,” he said. “That’s what we get out of it.”
