103 year-old woman still singing Gospel hymns

By Kristen Hampton - bio l email

YORK, SC (WBTV) - Willa Mae Moore doesn't remember all the lyrics all the time. Sometimes a worn copy of church hymnals serves as a little refresher. But there's no mistaking when she belts out the sweet tunes she grew up with.

"I'm coming up Lord... on the rough side of the mountain," Miss Willa sings out from the front parlor of White Oak Manor in York.

She celebrated her 103rd birthday last Friday. She celebrated that day, just like any other, with more hymns from the good old days.

Miss Willa's daughter says if she's not singing, something's wrong. Miss Willa says it keeps her young at heart.
