Sandi Patty May 1, 2008…Nashville, TN…Gospel music legend, Sandi Patty set to release her 30th studio recording Songs For The Journey (INO Records), on May 13th.

On Songs For The Journey, the five-time GRAMMY Award winner captures the soul, passion and praise of irreplaceable hymns of faith, which have inspired generations past. Through 11 new vibrant performances purposefully chosen to reflect her walk in faith from her childhood to today, listeners are sure to recognize their own stories among the selections, connecting with the struggles, joy, and peace along the way.

Sharing her thoughts on the foundation of the album, Patty explains, “The idea for this project came from watching my kids get older. I recently began to wonder and hope about what things they will someday look back upon as being foundational in their lives,” continues Patty, mother of eight. “Then I asked the same question of myself in relation to my passion for music—what are the songs that have inspired me and come to represent my journey, and how can I give those back to others as an encouragement?”

It was through songs like “Were It Not for Grace” and “Through It All” that gave Patty the encouragement and inspiration she needed during struggles in her life.

“In a manner of speaking, the unconditional love and grace of God doesn’t mean as much to people until they really need it,” Sandi says in relation to that past. “But like the Andrae Crouch song suggests, I wouldn’t trade anything if it meant I wouldn’t have the current understanding of who God is and who I am because of Him.”

Produced by David Hamilton, Songs For The Journey was created in various parts of the world ranging from Nashville, Bill Gaither’s studio in Indiana and even Prague where powerful record with orchestral segments were recorded for stirring operatic numbers such as “Panis Angelicus,” a duet between Patty and her husband, Don Peslis.

Songs For The Journey, a lovingly crafted achievement that’s as diverse and entertaining as Sandi Patty herself. While previous releases displayed her gift for singing hymns, pop, gospel, Broadway, and even opera, none have ever combined these styles into one grand expression as pleasing and effective as this one.


Sandi Patty is one of the most highly acclaimed performers of our time, and with 39 Dove Awards, 5 Grammy Awards, 4 Billboard Music Awards, and a 2004 Gospel Music Hall of Fame inductee, is the most awarded female vocalist in contemporary Christian music history. Her albums have sold more than 11 million units, including three platinum and five gold recordings. Her rendition of The Star Spangled Banner during the rededication of the Statue of Liberty, broadcast across America on ABC’s special “Liberty Weekend”, introduced Sandi to the nation. Virtually overnight she became one of the country’s best-loved performers and is also an accomplished author of four titles. For the most updated information, please visit
