$1000 paid to song leader

We paid $1000 "bonus" at year end to a member of our church that leads the music almost every Sunday on a volunteer basis. Would this need to be treated as wages and withholding and PR taxes taken out, or would we need to 1099-Misc him?

She is no longer a volunteer if you give her money... basicly if you give money for any service performed they are employee or independant contractor... gotta love the IRS.... have her fill out a W-9 and give her a 1099 misc.
