From the back cover: The North Family, co-workers and servants of the Lord, feel there is a greater need for gospel recordings in the home now than ever before! Standing left to right in photo: Winford, age 15, and Bonnie (Mom) North. Sitting left to right: Judy, age 19; Karen, age 11; and Sharon, age 17, Howard, (Dad) North, not pictured, is a very important part of the North Family Singers. Dad does not sing with us, but is a Christian and prays for us always be a blessing to some soul.

The North's worked out of Mount Orab, Ohio.

    1. No, I do not know if they are still singing. It seems like most of the groups I've posted in this blog are long lost to history.

  3. Hello - I came across Mrs. North's obituary today and thought I would share it with you on this blog. I never knew that I lived 1/2 hour from where she lived. I sure would have enjoyed getting to meet with with all of them again.

  4. I also found Bro. North's obituary today. For some reason this family is strongly on my mind today so I will pray for them. The North's were an awesome bunch.

  5. I grew up going to the Corwin Penecostal Church & i remember the North Family coming to sing at our church. They were awsome & very spiritual. I am very sorry to hear about their mother passing away.

  7. Have been looking for information on The Singing North Family. Saw on facebook a pic of The North Band with Winford in the lead of the pic, looked like maybe Karen was in it also. If anyone has more info would love to contact them. Miss them coming to our home.
