Kaskaskia College is pleased to welcome Grammy and platinum recording artist Sandi Patty to the KC Jane Knight Auditorium on Saturday, April 5. Known as the “The Voice”, Patti is one of the most highly acclaimed performers in our time with five Grammy Awards, four Billboard Music Awards, three platinum records, five gold records, and eleven million units sold.
Patty was introduced to the world with her rendition of the Star Spangled Banner at the rededication of the Statue of Liberty in 1986. Since then, she has become the most awarded female vocalist in contemporary Christian music history, with 40 Dove Awards, and was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2004. She has released over 30 albums and her performance at KC will focus on the latest album, "Everlasting", which features notable hymns and songs of worship in an intimate and acoustic setting.
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 January 2012.
Patty’s performance at KC is part of the College’s Season of Entertainment Series.
Advanced tickets are on sale now by calling the KC Box Office at 618-545-3223, or going on line at www.kaskaskia.edu/soe
