The MacDonald Family Singers is a homeschooling family—made up of nine members, the children range in age from fourteen to twenty-nine and started with just a vocal program. As the children grew, instruments and more musical styles were added. They bring 10-15 instruments to their concerts, including a keyboard, brass, and various stringed instruments. Their repertoire includes original Scripture melodies, a cappella hymns, traditional, gospel bluegrass, and sacred classical. They sing at churches, nursing and retirement homes, community events, camps, senior centers, and other various venues.  With the purchase of a bus in 2003, the MacDonald family has had the opportunity to make several cross-country singing tours per year.  Their albums Honey In The Rock, Power In The Blood, and Glorify The Lord With Me are available to listen or download here.  The MacDonalds count it a privilege to share the Gospel message of Jesus Christ where ever they go.
