Sandi Patty, is a solo artist based in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Due to a typo on Sandi's Song, which spelled her name Sandi Patti, she continued releasing music with that spelling for fifteen years before correcting her last name.

1978-1979: For My Friends & Sandi's Song[edit]

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. According to the FAQ section on her website, the name on her birth certificate is Sandra Patty. A printer's error on the labeling listed her name as Sandi Patti, and she used this moniker as her stage name for the next fifteen years before correcting it to Sandi Patty.

2017-Present: Farewell Tour & Retirement[edit]

In 2015, she announced her retirement, citing age and a desire to spend more time with her grandchildren. In 2016, she released Forever Grateful, an album of new and rerecorded material, and embarked on a farewell tour of the same name between February 2016 and March 2017.

After retirement, she still performs as an Artist in Residence at Crossings Community Church in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
