After graduating from Riverview Gardens High School, Christopher Collier moved to Kansas City, MO, where he attended and graduated from the University Missouri-Kansas City Conservatory with a B.A. degree in Jazz and Performance. In 1996, he married Le’Rhonda (Mimms) Collier. They now share the joy of their two daughters Jazzmine Sy’less and Alyssa Christine Collier.
Christopher Collier has been very involved in the gospel music and jazz industry; he has recorded and played with some of the best; Thompson Community Choir, Chuck Smith, Kansas City’s Own Gerald Dunn, Kim Burrell, Joy Unlimited, Mark Hubbard and DeWayne Woods. He also served as Vice-President and producer of Shakin’ the Mountain Productions, which has produced several album projects; Bishop Mark Tolbert and Temple Worship, The N.W.D.C. Mass Choir and Friends, Min. John Mark Tolbert, and DeWayne Woods and When Singers Meet.
Through life’s ups and downs, Christopher Collier has developed a mindset and thought pattern on this wise… “If we learn to be honest with God, others, and ourselves we will find that we hold the very key in our own hands to our own success. But, we must learn that when we are converted, we must strengthen our brethren. We must watch as well as pray and also, maintain integrity towards all mankind and continue to help one another to achieve the visions that benefit our families and communities.
