Grammy winning Gospel singer Sandi Patty is singing her swan song.
On Monday, a group of about 20 publicists, media moguls, and celebrities gathered at Morrell Wine Bar in Rockefeller Center to hear the 59-year-old musician announce her retirement and farewell tour. Patty’s career has spanned some four decades, during which she accumulated five Grammy Awards, four Billboard Music Awards, 40 Dove Awards, and sold more than 12 million units. She is one of only a few musicians to perform at three separate Presidential Inaugurations.
But all that is now coming to an end.
“No matter what you do, there comes a time when you should step away,” Patty says. “And mine has finally come.”
