      Thursday morning the popular tune "Single Ladies" was coming from a roof-topâ?¦but with a twist.

      Thursday morning the popular tune "Single Ladies" was coming from a roof-topâ?¦but with a twist.

      Instead, a mission group was singing "all the shingle ladies".

      Youth group members from Grant and Newago Churches are re-roofing a house with the Freedom Builders in Traverse City.

      This was for an 80-year-old woman who didn't have enough money to repair the leaks in her roof.

      "A lot of the fun in serving is that we want to make sure there's joy in the service and they've certainly performed that well today,â?? said Freedom Builders Executive Director Skip Brown. â??Partly because what happens, is when there's joy in the service then you've given a real gift, that's special. The family doesn't receive another debt they receive a gift, and I think they received a gift from these people."

      The freedom builders still have 230 other families to help.
