    When Kim Collingsworth was three years old, she heard her father preach a message on the gift of wisdom that God gave Solomon. When he said that God gave Solomon a gift of wisdom because he asked for it, that made such an impression that she still remembers it. She went home and begged the Lord for a gift, and went to bed thinking, "I can't wait to see what I'm gonna be when I wake up in the morning!" She never dreamed that the gift would involve music, since she doesn't remember any interest in music up to that point, but shortly afterwards, she began to play the piano.
     
    When she was seven, the church organist resigned his position, so her mother moved to organ and she started playing piano for church. In her teen years, she recorded three piano solo recordings. In junior and senior high school, she accompanied several college groups in concert and on their recordings.
     
    She met Phil when she was fourteen; they got married in 1986. They began performing together six weeks before their 1986 wedding. For the next thirteen years, they led music at various revivals in the spring and the fall, and did eight to ten camp meetings each summer. During those years, she virtually never played a piano solo - she accompanied Phil's trumpet solos, and played accompaniment for the singing. 
     
    When asked why she started playing piano solos again once the family transitioned into a concert ministry, she laughs and says, "You can thank my husband for that!" In the concerts, he started saying, "Why don't you play 'O Holy Night'?" or "Why don't you play this or that?" And it just grew from there.
     
    Since that time, in addition to accompanying the Collingsworth Family's concerts, and recording signature versions of "How Great Thou Art," "It is Well With My Soul," and the "Hallelujah Chorus," she has released several piano solo recordings with Crossroads.
     
    "It is such a privilege to do what we do," Kim says. "I don't ever want to take it for granted. My biggest prayer is that we stay focused on reality--that really, what it's about is uplifting and magnifying Jesus and pointing people to the Cross. I think people in the seats are hungry for God, for something fresh. Sometimes that's a tough job for us, to always be fresh. I think our fellow travelers on the road all understand and would agree with me on that. It just makes me realize how frail we are as humans and how much we need God's help to make a difference in people's lives. What a privilege to serve in this way!"
