Five-time Grammy winner Sandi Patty is returning to the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center in Belle Glade on Friday, Jan. 17 at 7 p.m.
A highly acclaimed performer 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.” With 40 Dove Awards, she is the most awarded female vocalist in contemporary Christian music history, and she was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2004 and as an Indiana Living Legend in 2007.
