As I said above, I am partial to music. It can be soothing and sweet but then turn right around and rouse the mind and body all the while speaking to the heart. And that is exactly why I like Kim Collingsworth. Her style of playing is different from most southern gospel pianists and it almost has a classical sound. Don't get me wrong, she can plunk out a southern tune too, but overall I would say her flair is towards classical. The filming is very well done and we see her fingers flying across the keys or Kim singing along to the playing. I have been at a taping before and there is so much that goes on behind the scenes but I think this turned out superb!!
The songs range from quiet and meditative to rousing military tunes or jazzy southern gospel classics. We also see not only Kim and her family but other well known pianists Tim Parton and Stan Whitmire. And believe me, I love seeing them play. But I also found the lesser known guests to be quite a delightful surprise! This includes Jesse Keep, Brian Keaton and the Keep girls. Boy are those girls little angels! Loved their part in the DVD. But I have to say, one of my favorite parts was hearing Jesse lay Great is Thy Faithfulness. Wow!! His story is amazing but his playing is superb. It was also a joy to hear Tim and Stan battle at the pianos.
