The Bowling Family combines talent, sincerity and experience to create a night that YOU will never forget!! Their goal for the evening is to usher in the presence of God and remind you that YOU too will make it!! Candor, truth, and stories of hope are the focus of the evening at any Bowling Family concert/service. 

They are witnesses of the miracles that come from the struggle. And in this season that has tested and tried all of humanity, this team of GOD-called women have a special place in the world of music and ministry!!

The group consists of Kelly, her daughter Hope who is 21, Katelanne, who is 17, and Gracie, who is 14. The youthful sound that these girls bring will be embraced by all, young and old. What a breath of fresh air!!

This Family is no stranger to the Christian music world, with Kelly having a long list of accomplishments during her vocal career.  She spent more than 15 years with her family, The Crabb Family.  During that time they were the recipients of three GRAMMY nominations, 11 Dove Awards, 16 number one songs and numerous other accomplishments.  Kelly’s unmistakable voice could be heard on the family’s hits “Don’t You Wanna Go,” “Good Day,” “Jesus Will Do What You Can’t,” “Trail Of Tears,” as well as singing harmonies on all the others. 

Kelly and her daughters truly bring a sound all their own to any stage.  The addition of the three Bowling girls brings a refreshing youthful sound that is a bit reminiscent of early Crabb Family days. 

Kelly is one of a handful of Christian artists that can say she’s been on a bus her entire adult life. She and her siblings became a touring entity when she was only seventeen.  She’s never earned a single dollar that wasn’t a ministry dollar. Kelly frequents the speaking circuit as well. She’s a sought after speaker for ladies events, as well as evangelistic services. The music is fresh, the anointing is the helper, and authenticity permeates the atmosphere when these women of God take the stage.

Kelly’s oldest daughter Hope officially joined The Bowling Family on stage, full-time, about eight years ago. Things change, life happened, and Katelanne and Gracie have moved into the line-up in a major way in 2021. 

In this season of life the Bowling Sisters are front-and-center with Mom, blessing us with their amazing vocal ability. However, their sweet spirits match the talent, and their love for people is their calling card. 

The world is in need of the Gospel. The power of music as a tool to reach the masses is not a new thing. However, what these girls are walking in is different, new, and seasoned with a desire to sing to you through the pain that life sometimes brings. 

Only God knows where this road leads. But we can count on this. Kelly Bowling will be found praising, loving, and singing a song of encouragement to the rest of us for the rest of her days. Her children are cut from the same cloth.

To quote Kelly: “God called me before I was. So, as long as I have breath in my body, I will be found telling of the goodness of Jesus. In the good seasons, in the rough seasons, in the healthy seasons, in the not so healthy seasons, I will tell of His faithfulness.” 

The Bowling Family is booked by the Beckie Simmons Agency (615-595-7500).
