In their 9th year of ministry, “Evidence” continues to present the Gospel through music and testimony to the Body of Christ.  “Our mission statement is to encourage and challenge the Body of Christ to be evidence of a living, loving God to the world.” says Kirk.  “As believers, we are the tangible Body of Christ here on the earth.  Our lives must be living proof of a God who can change a life.” Comprised of two married couples, Tim and Amy Henning and Kirk and Julianne Kirkland, Evidence is a culmination of a lifelong dream, and considering their heritage, a seemingly natural path to follow.  With strong musical roots (Kirk’s father is arranger/orchestrator Camp Kirkland) Tim and Kirk grew up singing together in Jacksonville, FL at the First Baptist Church.  “Kirk and I have been best friends since we were about 8 years old,” says Tim, “it’s been so long, we don’t even remember meeting.”  You can hear this “sibling” sound in their blend on stage and brotherly relationship off stage.  Julianne and Amy were added in by marriage.  While attending Tennessee Temple University in Chattanooga completing a church music degree, Tim met and later married Amy.  Originally from High Point, NC, Amy spent her time at TN Temple pursuing a degree in Vocal Performance.Kirk finished a Bachelors degree in Music Education from Florida State University and traveled with the Living Word concert ministry before moving to Nashville to pursue work as a studio singer.  That’s where Julianne enters the picture.  Originally from Dayton, OH, Julianne attended Cedarville University and completed a double major of French Horn Performance and Communications.  She then moved to Nashville to work in the Christian Music industry.  During this time, she met and married Kirk as God had brought together the final piece of what would soon become Evidence.Licensed and ordained to the ministry, both Tim and Kirk knew they were called to the church.  “Kirk and I had always wanted to minister together in some capacity,” says Tim.  “ With our love of music and passion for people, along with God bringing wives into our lives with like hearts, Evidence soon became a reality.”After completing their 4th recording project (produced by Scott Williamson – FFH, Point of Grace, Michael O’ Brien), entitled Look Up in the fall of 2004, and with the 2006 release of Voices, their much anticipated acappella recording, the group feels a new momentum with a timely message for the church.  “God has been teaching all of us individually and as a group about perspective,” says Amy.  “We know that every place we sing there are people that are hurting, struggling, striving in their walk with the Lord… like we are.”  “Just because we’re up in front of them doesn’t mean we don’t struggle just the same,” agrees Julianne.  “The Lord has been challenging us to “look up” and see things from HIS perspective. When we look from His point of view, everything changes. How we see God, ourselves, others, even our circumstances. We can’t help but change.”  Kirk agrees, “Seeing the heart of God, His love for us, His love for the world – we are realizing more and more on our journey that life may be hard, but God is good.”Just down the road, or the interstate, here in America or abroad, Evidence has a desire to see God at work and join Him there.  Whether in the presentation of original songs and testimonies, leading in worship, teaching workshops or leading choir/orchestra clinics, Evidence desires first to challenge believers everywhere to be evidence of God’s grace to the world, that they might secondly, show the lost how to have a personal relationship with a living, loving God through His son, Jesus.

Sandi Patti-“The Voice”
November 8, 2007

As one of the most highly acclaimed performers of our time, with 5 Grammy Awards, 4 Billboard Music Awards, 3 Platinum records, 5 Gold records, and 11 million units sold, Sandi is simply known as “the Voice.”  She recently debuted her first feature musical performance in “Sandi Patty’s Broadway” with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.  The sold out weekend run featured some of Broadway’s finest moments with the world’s finest voice. 

Sandi is the most awarded female vocalist in contemporary music history, with 39 Dove Awards. She was inducted to Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2004 and an Indiana Living Legend in 2007.  And while her 30-year career is heavily rooted in the gospel music industry, Sandi has had the opportunity in more recent years to extend her career outside the genre.   

One of Sandi’s dreams has always been to perform on Broadway, but the commitment of raising her family of eight children always came first. The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra offered best of both worlds with “Sandi Patty’s Broadway.”  The relationship with ISO began in 2000 when Sandi first served as featured headliner for the annual “Yuletide Celebration. “  Since then, she has been asked to reprise her role three times as the most requested headliner in “Yuletide Celebration” history. 

Sandi once again brought success in “Sandi Patty’s Broadway.”  The Broadway revue featured some of the most memorable songs from classic musicals such as “West Side Story,” “My Fair Lady,” “The Phantom of the Opera,” “The Music Man,” and many others.  Sung as only Sandi can sing, a highlight of the second act occurs when Sandi sings a compilation of songs performed by great male Broadway leads.

“It was such fun for me to perform all of the songs that I grew up singing,” says Sandi.  “When I was a little girl, I always dreamed, as I sang along with my record player in my bedroom, that I was Julie Andrews or Barbara Streisand singing all of the Broadway classics.  My dream came true through ‘Sandi Patty’s Broadway.’”

When her rendition of The Star Spangled Banner was used during the rededication of the Statue of Liberty in 1986 and broadcast across America on ABC’s special “Liberty Weekend,” Sandi was introduced to the world.  Virtually overnight she became one of the country’s best-loved performers.  Her version of the National Anthem has become synomamous with patriotic celebration, with performances at “A Capitol Fourth” with the National Symphony, the Pan American Games, the Indianapolis 500, the Dedication of the Francis Scott Key Memorial in Washington, D.C., the Dedication of Camp David Chapel, and the ABC Fourth of July Special. 

Sandi has performed with symphonies across the country for over 10 years including the Boston Pops, Cincinnati Pops, Dallas Symphony, Baltimore Symphony, Houston Symphony, Oklahoma City Philharmonic, and many more.  Her first Pops album, “An American Songbook,” was recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra and featured many favorites from her symphony performances.

In addition to her prolific musical career, Sandi is also an accomplished author.  She is the best-selling author of Broken on the Back Row, Life in the Blender, and Falling Forward.  Sandi received the 2006 Silver Angel Award for Broken on the Back Row.  Her fourth title, Layers, will be released in early 2008. 

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