Contemporary Christian artist to perform

Published 10:35pm Monday, February 7, 2011

No other Christian artist at work today is better suited to sing about life’s journey than Sandi Patty.

Regarded as “The Voice” of contemporary Christian music, Patty will be in concert at the Howard Performing Arts Center on the campus of Andrews University at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 19 as part of the “Howard Center Presents…” for the 2010-2011 season.

Three decades into her career, the Gospel Music Hall of Fame inductee with 39 Dove Awards, five Grammy Awards and an armload of platinum and gold albums is truly a music legend. Her diverse singing experiences include performing ballads, pop songs, hymns and distinctive renditions of traditional gospel music since she sang for the first time upfront at age two.

During the past quarter-century, she has performed everywhere, from the Billy Graham Crusades to the Indianapolis 500, Camp David to Disneyland, presidential inaugurations to the Fiesta Bowl. In addition to solo performances and recording, Patty continues to perform with big city orchestras.

“I am grateful for the many opportunities God has given in my life and for how he has allowed me to spread my wings,” said Patty. “Singing is my way to tell my story of hope, life and love.”

Her dynamic soprano voice and soaring range is on display in her most recent album, “Songs for the Journey,” and her chart-topping hits, including “Morning Like This,” “I’ve Just Seen Jesus” and “More than Wonderful.”
