Legendary contemporary Christian singer Sandi Patty will headline a three-event concert in select cities in the south from March 23-March 25, according to Dennis Fioravaniti with the Christian Classic Agency.
The Sandi Patty & Friends Tour is slated for March 23 in Memphis, Tenn., March 24 in Birmingham, Ala., and March 25 in
Little Rock, Ark.
The Sandi Patty & Friends Tour featuring one of the most highly acclaimed Christian vocal performers of our time with five
Grammy awards, four Billboard Music Awards, three platinum records, five gold records, and 11 million units sold, Patty is simply known as “The Voice.” Patty is the most awarded female vocalist in contemporary Christian music history, with 40 Dove Awards. She was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2004 and as an Indiana Living Legend in 2007. She has released more than 30 albums, including her latest Dove Award winning project, “The Edge of the Divine” (2010).
Patty is joined by her long time friend and five-time Grammy Award and eleven time Dove Award Male Vocalist of the Year,
Larnelle Harris. Together, Patty and Harris have recorded some of the all time greatest duets and they will be singing several of them during the tour.
Also slated to join Patty on her three-night concert event are Dove Award winning artist Wayne Watson, whose career has spanned three decades and who has penned dozens of award-winning songs; Dove Award winning artist Clay Crosse, with his powerful soulful tenor voice; and Group of the Year winning Christian music group, 4HIM.
The event is promoted by the Christian Classic Agency, whose focus is to bring back the “classic” Christian music of the 80s and 90s to audiences everywhere.
