We hope you have had a chance to read the June 2017 issue of SGNScoops Magazine, filled with great features, photographs and information for all Gospel music fans everywhere. We highlight the Collingsworth Family this month with a great cover story by Erin Stevens. Complimenting that feature is a Fatherâ€™s Day chat with the men of the Collingsworths by Craig Harris.
The feature by Erin Stevens reveals some things about the Collingsworths that you may not know:
â€œI met Phil on Aug. 26, 1983,â€ Kim shares. â€œI had just started my freshmen year of high school, and he was starting his sophomore year of college. Yes, we are four years and seven months apart. I was 14 years old and he was 19. It was an instant attraction for both of us. I was too young to date, so we wrote letters and talked on the phone â€“ rarely talked on the phone, because it was too expensive back then â€“ until I was 16….” For more of this feature, be sure to read the cover story by Erin Stevens.

Raised in southern Ontario, Canada, Lorraine developed a love for music at an early age and enjoys listening to a variety of Christian, Country, Pop and R&B music. A love for writing and a need to share the love of Jesus through her thoughts have come together with an enjoyment of Southern Gospel, enabling her to contribute to SGM Radio website, SGN Scoops Digital, and the Southern Styles Show.
