- This DVD IS Definitely Majestic! by Charity on 10/23/2014
I have to tell you, music is something that draws me. It speaks to the heart like nothing I know. So when I saw the new DVD by Kim Collingsworth, I just knew it would be a great addition to my music library. And believe me, Majestic is absolutely wonderful!!
I am very 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. If you love piano playing, this is the DVD for you!

- An audiotory celebration of praise and patriotism is a family event by Adena on 10/17/2014
Are you ready to enjoy an auditory celebration of praise and patriotism? That’s exactly what this Majestic DVD from The Collingsworth Family does – celebrates.
This DVD has such a variety (praise songs, songs of love and songs that stir up patriotism), that there is something for everyone. This is truly a family event and gift from their family to yours.
You will be blessed not only by Kim Collingsworth's piano skills, but as the entire family sings, including special guest appearances of her nieces and nephew. Stan Whitmore and Tim Parton also are showcased. There is so much talent here and hearing the entire audience join in singing a hymn will leave you with chill bumps.
- Love the music by Debra on 10/14/2014
I'm listening to Swing Low, Sweet Chariot as I type this, and I have to say that the music is simply beautiful. There is a fair amount of variety, and I thought about trying to explain the songs and the styles, but the easiest explanation is that there is some distinctly Christian music, some that isn't (Stars and Stripes Forever). There is some instrumental (one piano, multiple pianos, violin and piano), and plenty that involves voices. Most of that is adults, but the nieces singing Over the Rainbow is adorable. And then there is some with the audience singing, and that is beautiful too.
I do have to say that my husband really did not like it. He enjoyed the music part, but he has never been a huge fan of recorded live music in general. So anytime Kim was interacting with the audience at all, he was griping. He complained that he really had no desire to watch her talk, he wanted music. After the first viewing of this DVD, I was convinced that over half of it was Kim talking, based on his negativity.
Of course, when I watched the DVD without him, I had a different opinion. Yes, there are points where Kim talks awhile, like telling the story of her blind nephew (that's a few minutes long), but without him griping at me, it was obvious that the DVD is mostly music, and very pretty music at that.
I'm enjoying having it to watch/listen to when there isn't other stuff happening. At least when my husband isn't around.
