Kim Collingsworth recovering from neck issue

There has been a fair amount of concern in Southern Gospel circles over the last week over Kim Collingsworth’s health after she had to miss a concert last weekend. It was the first time she missed a concert in the fifteen years the group has been on the road. I had been asked if she was all right and how she was doing, but hadn’t heard anything until the Collingsworth Family¬†posted this¬†yesterday:

Many thanks to everyone that has prayed for and are asking about Kim’s condition. Over this past weekend, she had to be taken to the ER at St Joseph’s Hospital in Phoenix to have a debilitating neck pain diagnosed. She missed her first performance in 15 yrs Saturday morning at the SWGF in Phoenix. She was diagnosed with acute Torticollis, which is a condition of the neck muscle contracting during sleep, then locking in place and not releasing. The doctor was able to treat it with meds and she was able to perform on Sunday at Skyline Church in San Diego. Again, thanks to each of you for your concern and prayers !!!
