About Pastor Mitty Collier

Mitty began her career singing in church and as a part of the Hayes Ensemble and the Lloyd Reese Singers.  After being discovered by Ralph Bass, who worked for Chess Records, Mitty was signed to the label in 1960. With the powerful soul-gospel voice Mitty was best at singing ballads like  "I Had a Talk with My Man," a 1964 Chess single, and "Sharing You," this single was a Top Ten R&B hit. 

Mitty recorded for Chess from 1960 to 1968 during this time she also was signed to Peachtree Records of Atlanta, GA and released her first charting single in 1963 "I'm Your Part Time Love", an answer record to Little Johnny Taylor's "Part Time Love". By 1968, Mitty left the Chess imprint but kept recording for the Peachtree label from 1969 to 1972. In 1972, Collier left R&B music all together and began singing and recording gospel music. Mitty established a community outreach program, "Feed-A-Neighbor" (FAN), forwhich she received the key to the city of Birmingham in 1987. 

She became a preacher, and was ordained in 1989, later being appointed pastor of the More Like Christ Christian Fellowship Ministries in Chicago. She has received the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW) Woman of Wonder Award 2000.
