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.”
