Sandi Patty Biography

Sandi Patty born Sandra Faye Patty, is an American Christian music singer. She was born on July 12, 1956 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. She was born into a musical family as her father was a minister of music, and her mother served as the church pianist.

She first performed at the age of two when she sang “Jesus Loves Me” for her church, Phoenix First Church of God in Anderson, Indiana. First growing up in Phoenix, then San Diego, she and her brothers joined their parents in a performing group known as “The Ron Patty Family”, and sang at churches nationwide during summer holidays.

After graduating from Crawford High School in San Diego, she attended San Diego State University and Anderson University in Anderson, Indiana, where she studied voice with soprano Greta Dominic, but graduated with an emphasis in conducting. While studying at Anderson University, she worked as a studio musician for area recording studios, singing background vocals and recording commercial jingles, including one for Juicy Fruit gum.

Her reputation as a performer and studio singer grew during the late 1970s, and it was during this time that she initiated contact with legendary Christian musician Bill Gaither. Patty recorded her first album, For My Friends, an independent effort, that landed in the hands of executives at Singspiration! records. In 1979, she was signed to Singspiration! and released her first professional record, Sandi’s Song.
