Their home has seen the addition of four children across the years and the children are now very actively involved in the ministry. Their two oldest daughters are quite proficient on the violin and play at each of their concerts. Their entire family sings together in an ensemble. Kim is well-known for her phenomenal mastery of the piano and the extraordinary talent God has given her is a part of each concert, as well as trumpet solos from Phil.
Customer Reviews For "Brooklyn and Courtney"Write Your Own Review
Like mother, like daughters. Three years ago, Kim Collingsworth released her magnum opus "Majestic," a collection of instrumental hymns and songs, which literally personifies the word "breathtaking." It was an elegant album set in the key of worship. Three years later, her daughters, Brooklyn and Courtney Collingsworth have followed suit. "Brooklyn and Courtney," released via StowTown Records, is another beautifully executed collection of 10 instrumental songs. While mom's mettle was the piano, daughters Brooklyn and Courtney adopt the violin as their choice instrument. The record not only finds the siblings putting their virtuoso with the violins on display, but it also finds them weaving new hues to old hymns (such as "At the Cross," "No One Ever Cared for Me Like Jesus" and "Let There be Peace on Earth"), inspirational pop classics ("You Raised Me Up" and "The Prayer"), and classical pieces ("Bach Concerto in D Minor"). As soon as the first note of album opener "At the Cross" strikes, you know you are in the presence of greatness. Starting with the intimate sounds of the piano before layered with the sounds of the violin and some heavenly orchestral sounds, "At the Cross" is turned into a majestic epic that leaves you grasping for more.
