Carolyn Cummings & Sandra Hughes


Sandy Hughes is a former high school English and drama teacher and current stay-at-home mom from Lake Isabella. She is married to Anthony and they have 2 girls (Rosalinda and Juanita) and 1 boy (Bennett). Sandy has been singing in churches since she was old enough for her father, Randy Bennett, to stick a microphone in her hand and tell her, "Whenever anyone asks you do to something for the Lord, say 'yes.'" She is currently serving as vice president of state WMU and volunteer children's ministry director at Mt. View Baptist Church, where on Sunday nights she leads Girls in Action.

Carolyn Cummings is a proud mother of 3 rambunctious young girls who she shares with her husband of 10 years, David. Carolyn is a member of Resurrection Church in Bakersfield. Like her twin sister Sandy Hughes, Carolyn has been blessed with a loud voice with which to praise the Lord. Carolyn believes music is a gift given to the world for the purpose of scripture memorization and singing praises to our worthy King.
