Sandi Patty Releases LIVE Farewell Recording

Sandi Patty Releases LIVE Farewell Recording

NASHVILLE, Tenn. —Five-time GRAMMY® Award winner and 40-time GMA DOVE Award winner Sandi Patty recently embarked on her farewell tour on the heels of a career that has spanned over 40 years and inspired countless fans and fellow musicians. 

Gaither Music Group is pleased to release a new CD and DVD recording of that LIVE concert.  Forever Grateful: Live from the Farewell Tour, which will hit shelves this Friday, June 16th, captures many of Patty’s most awarded hits and classic gospel songs including “Love in Any Language,” “We Shall Behold Him,” “Via Dolorosa,” “The Old Rugged Cross,” “It Is Well with My Soul,” “How Great Thou Art” and medleys of hits such as “How Majestic Is Your Name,” “Let There Be Praise,” “Another Time, Another Place,” “I’ve Just Seen Jesus,” “More Than Wonderful” and more.
“It is hard to believe that after several years of planning and looking forward to The Forever Grateful Tour, it is all over,” stated Patty, the most awarded female vocalist in contemporary Christian music history.  “Now, I find myself thinking of something new every day that took place during the tour–the stories we were privileged to hear about a certain song being integral in one’s particular season of life…the songs that we got to ‘dust off’ from the old days and have my kids think, ‘Wow, Mom, that’s a cool song.’ 
“In 20 or so years, I want my grandkids to know what was important to me…that sharing about God’s faithfulness through music was an honor and a privilege.  This year I received one question time and time again—‘How do you want to be remembered?’  My answer will forever be the same—I am a woman who loves her Lord fiercely.  I am a woman who loves her family passionately.  And when I got a chance…I sang about it!”

That voice garnered four Billboard Music Awards, three platinum records, five gold records and 11 million units sold.  The Gospel Music Hall of Fame member, simply known to many as The Voice, delivered her final farewell program in over 90 markets.
 
Filmed at Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis, Tennessee, Forever Grateful: Live from the Farewell Tour will be airing on DISH TV, DirecTV, GaitherTV, PBS, TBN, RFD-TV, FamilyNet, CTN, GMC, GMTN, Guardian, Liberty, TCT and TLN. It will air in Canada on Vision TV, CTS, The Miracle Channel and Hope TV.
 
The recording, exclusively distributed by Capitol Christian Distribution and Universal Music, is available throughout general market stores and the Christian marketplace in addition to online retailers including iTunes, Amazon and www.gaither.com.

New Video and Audio Projects from Hall of Fame Singer Releasing in March

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on March 6, 2013 – 11:28 am -

LNashville, TN – New DVD and CD projects from Hall of Fame vocalist and five-time Grammy winner, Larnelle Harris, will be released via Seaboard Records/Captial Christian distributors (formerly EMI CMG) on March 26. The projects entitled Larnelle Live in Nashville feature a live concert performance from Harris along with guests Sandi Patty, Steve Green and Steve Amerson. In addition to singing several of his hit songs, Harris also performs new tunes on the audio and video projects, including a brand-new duet from Harris and Patty. The duo’s previous two duets, “More than Wonderful” and “I’ve Just Seen Jesus,” both won Grammy Awards. Among other highlights, Harris is joined by Green and Amerson in a special “Three Tenors” performance segment which the trio debuted last year at Carnegie Hall.

Harris is the only person in history to be a member of three distinct hall of fame organizations: the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame and the Amateur Radio Hall of Fame. In addition to his five Grammy and eleven Dove Awards, including being named Male Vocalist of the Year three times by the Gospel Music industry, Harris has garnered nineteen #1 national radio singles and countless top 10 hits. Songs such as “How Excellent Is Thy Name,” “I Miss My Time With You,” “I’ve Just Seen Jesus,” plus many others, including his signature song, “Amen,” are now considered modern gospel classics. From the White House to the 38th Parallel, Harris has impacted audiences across the globe with his music. He was the first gospel artist to perform inside the Kremlin after the fall of the Soviet Union. He is one of a handful of celebrities to receive the Ad Council’s Silver Bell Award for Distinguished Public Service in recognition of his song “Mighty Spirit” as the theme song for the longest-running Public Service Announcement in television history.

In addition to his numerous solo concert dates, Harris is also featured on various tours this year including the God of All Glory Tour, The Ralph Carmichael Legacy Tour, Gaither Homecoming tour and the Sandi Patty & Friends tour, the latter of which CCM Magazine reviewed and described Harris as having a “larger-than-life stage presence with impeccable vocal prowess.” Harris and Patty will join award-winning pianist Dino for several concert dates this year as well.

The CD will retail for $9.99 and the cost of the DVD will be $14.99. Retailers can place orders by calling 1-800-877-4443 or emailing distribution@emicmg.com. For more information on Harris, visit www.Larnelle.com.

Dino, Larnelle Harris, Sandi Patty, and Robert Stearns to Honor Israel at Carnegie Hall

Written by SGN Scoops on January 31, 2013 – 3:43 pm -

NEW YORK, Jan. 31, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — Well-respected, award-winning Christian recording artists are honoring Israel this spring in a gala benefit concert being hosted at Carnegie Hall by pianist Dino Kartsonakis and his wife Cheryl.

The special “Honoring Israel at Carnegie Hall” concert will take place at 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 11, 2013, at the world famous venue. The event will feature performances, from the Philadelphia Boys Choir, Denver and the Mile High Orchestra, and The Christian Cultural Center Chorale as well as the musical talents of Robert Stearns, operatic tenor Daniel Rodriguez, and Grammy and Dove Award-winning singers Sandi Patty and Larnelle Harris.

“Anti-semitism is on the rise, and Israel is now surrounded by nations committed to her destruction,” world-famous piano artist Dino said. “Cheryl and I have always prioritized praying and working for the peace of Jerusalem. My friends, it is vital that we stand together.”

Robert Stearns, founder of Eagles’ Wings, and a global leader in Jewish-Christian relations, said, “The evening of music will celebrate our nation’s longstanding and unbreakable bond with Israel at one of Manhattan’s most prestigious venues.”

“There has never been a time in our nation’s history that our public and private bond with Israel has been more critical,” Stearns said. “With this historic concert, we hope to make it clear that New York stands with Israel.”

Proceeds from the event will go to feed hungry Jews, Arabs and Druze in Israel through humanitarian non-profit, “Hope for Zion” as well as to help build a prayer and study center in Migdal Arbel, Israel, whose mission is to cultivate a love and understanding for the people and nation of Israel.

For more information and to purchase tickets visit www.carnegiehall.org or call 212-247-7800.
