SoVaNow.com / October 16, 2013
The Collingsworth Family, a nationally known gospel ensemble that has been featured on Gaither Homecoming concerts, will perform in South Boston, on Thursday, Nov. 7, 7 p.m., at Halifax County High School.

Now touring nationally and singing with their four children, they have served as ministers of music and teachers in several congregations and colleges.

Kim, a pianist and arranger, accompanies both vocal songs and also instrumental pieces by their daughters, who are violinists, and by Phil, who is a conservatory-trained trumpeter.
