by: ISABEL GAUTSCHI - Betty Jean McDaniel, Lee Van Winkle and Dona Scott smile before breaking out in perfect three-part harmony. The siblings dropped by the Estacada News office and gave a preview of the music that will be performed at the sing-along.The Van Winkle Family has an auditory treat for you: gospel music.

Siblings Betty Jean McDaniel, Dona Scott and Lee Van Winkle dropped by the Estacada News to talk about the upcoming Old Time Gospel Sing-Along from 2- 4 p.m., Saturday, March 8, at the Estacada Assembly of God Church, 478 N.W. Wade Street.

Area musicians, singers, church groups and other melodic pairings have banded together to perform at the sing-along.

Lyrics will be projected while songs are being performed, allowing the audience to join in.

Van Winkle said he expects the event to draw people by the hundreds.

Van Winkle and his sisters grew up in a musically inclined family, listening to Southern Gospel and singing together.

It feels like family, the siblings say, as they rehearse with the event’s musicians.

You’ll definitely see some familiar faces at the Old Time Gospel Sing-Along.

In addition to the Van Winkle siblings, you’ll see City Councilor Rob Gaskill on bass; Philip Foster Farm site manager and Estacada Web Academy teacher Elaine Butler on keyboards; Cody Van Winkle of Spittin’ Images and the Aspen Meadow Band just to name a few.

There is no cover charge, but donations are appreciated.
