Founded by Phil and Kim Collingsworth, contemporary gospel group the Collingsworth Family, began as a duo in the mid-'80s before evolving into a family affair. In 2000, after performing and holding positions at numerous Christian institutions around the country, the couple made the transition to a full-time concert ministry, and began recording professionally with Nashville producer Wayne Haun and making regular appearances at Gaithers Homecoming Concerts. As their ministry grew, so did their family, and by the end of the decade, they were joined by daughters Brooklyn and Courtney (violin, vocals), Olivia (vocals), and son Philip (vocals), releasing a string of successful praise & worship albums including God Is Faithful (2006), We Still Believe (2007), Answer (2009), and Part of the Family (2012). ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
