A Lifelong ministry of singing, culminating in her latest album, "Here I Am," Sandy sings her own compositions with a beautiful anointing that is powerful, spiritually refreshing and undeniably real. Listen for yourself and let her minister to you through a soul-lifting musical experience.
Sandy began her music career at age 3, singing "Jesus Loves Me" to her church congregation. By age 9 she and her sister Joan, also their pianist, were singing as a duet on live radio. They were often joined for various performances by their father, a guitarist and vocalist. When she was 17 she traveled in northwest Ohio with the "Keynotes Trio," shown on the left. They were featured musicians for youth revivals and "All Night Sings." Through the years she has sung with a variety of church groups and choirs. Sandy continues to be in high demand as a soloist.
Sandy's forte is Christian music with an emphasis on Sacred, Southern Gospel and Contemporary styles. She is also an accomplished writer and public speaker. She currently writes monthly articles for More Than Survivors and is a featured writer on HeadtoHead.org, both ministering to persons with traumatic brain injury. Sandy’s personal testimony regarding her own brain injury, sustained in an auto accident in 1989, leaving her with partially paralyzed vocal chords, and the manifestation of God’s restorative power enabling her to sing, speak and write again is remarkable.
Sandy is the mother to five children—Julie, Lori, Jo Lynn, Paula, and Rich. They have presented her with 12 grandchildren and three great-grandsons. She currently resides in the Phoenix, AZ area where she can be found, on Sundays, worshipping and singing in the sanctuary choir, at Church on the Green, located in Sun City West.
