July 12, 2018 04:33 PM

If you're a music lover, you know there are numerous genres and choices. However, there's one category some say is waning. Two area women are trying to change that.

Ancient hymns go back to 7th century Greece. In early Colonial America, you can find published hymns as far back as the 15th century.

So for Donna Munafo and Sonia Higgins, hymns have staying power. They say it's mainly because they express man's reliance on God in times of trouble.

Nevertheless, with all the contemporary music, they say there are some who don't share their passion and the love of hymns is waning.

That's where the pair and their group 4ever1 comes in. They travel throughout the area dressed in period clothing making sure no one forgets.

They've taken their singing to churches, prisons, nursing homes and local events and have no plans of stopping.
