The Napper Singers of Winston-Salem were a crowd favorite at tonight’s Furniture City GospelFest, held at Living Water Baptist Church in High Point. Included on the roster of selections was their signature arrangement of the hymn “God Is Real.” One can tell by watching and listening to the Napper Singers that the sisters grew up during a time when singing was singing. It would not be surprising to learn that gospel trailblazers like the Barrett Sisters and Roberta Martin Singers were a couple of their influences.
