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.

While her 30-year career is heavily rooted in the gospel music industry, 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.

Sandi is also an accomplished author. For the bestseller, Broken on the Back Row, she received the 2006 Silver Angel Award.
