'The Voice' to make a visit
The most awarded female vocalist in contemporary Christian music history, Sandi Patty, will be performing at the Dogwood Center on Saturday, August 4 at 7:30 p.m. As one of the most highly acclaimed performers of our time with five Grammy® awards, four Billboard Music Awards, three platinum records, five gold records, and eleven million units sold, Sandi Patty is simply known as The Voice.
She has been inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, as an Indiana Living Legend, and has released over 30 albums. Sandi was introduced to the world with her rendition of The Star Spangled Banner during the rededication of the Statue of Liberty in 1986. Virtually overnight she became one of the country’s best-loved performers. Her version of the national anthem has become synonymous with patriotic celebration, including performances at “A Capitol Fourth” with the National Symphony, the Indianapolis 500, the Dedication of Camp David Chapel, and ABC’s Fourth of July Special.
While her thirty-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. Sandi has performed with symphonies across the country, including the New York Pops, Boston Pops, Cincinnati Pops, Dallas Symphony, Baltimore Symphony, Houston Symphony, and Oklahoma City Philharmonic. She also headlined the title role in sold out performances of the musical “Hello, Dolly!” with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, co-starring Tony Award winner Gary Beach.
In addition to her prolific musical career, Sandi is also an accomplished author. For the bestseller "Broken on the Back Row", Sandi received the 2006 Silver Angel Award. Her next book, "The Voice", will be released on November 6, 2018.
