Kim Keaton Collingsworth


Kim Collingsworth played piano and sang with her family group, the Collingsworth Family. She and her husband Phil Collingsworth had four children who also performed with the group: Phillip, Brooklyn, Courtney, and Olivia Collingsworth.

Kimberly Keaton began piano lessons at the age of four and by the age of eight was accompanying congregational singing. At the age of thirteen, she recorded Union Bible Seminary Presents Kimberly Keaton At The Keyboard. Her father Rev. James Keaton was president of the seminary at the time. Two more piano albums were recorded and released by the time she completed high school.

Keaton met her future husband, trumpet player Phil Collingsworth, when she was fourteen years old. They began appearing together in concert a few years later and a few weeks after that in 1986 they were married. For the next fourteen years, Kim and Phil led in revival services and camp-meetings where, curiously enough, Kim typically only played piano to accompany Phil's trumpet solos or for congregational singing.

As the family transitioned from the revival circuit to a touring music ministry in 2000, Kim's piano solos returned and quickly became a highlight of their concerts. Piano solo CDs soon followed as did recognition from her fans. Collingsworth was recognized with eight consecutive Favorite Musician Fan Awards by the subscribers of Singing News during the 2010s.
