Patty weaves AU talent together


Everyone I’ve talked to has such an appreciation for everything about AU, we’re all just happy to be able to give back in some way.

THB: The lineup is a “Who’s Who” of AU-related talent. How close do you remain with them and do you have any recent stories of performing or interacting with any of them?

Patty: Honestly, we’re all so busy that we don’t run into each other too often. I still sing with the Gaithers every once in awhile, and I’m actually a big fan of all the other musicians. They’re all on my itunes and that’s where we interact more than anywhere! I am so looking forward to performing with each of them in a few weeks all together for the first time.

THB: How was the decision made to have two shows?

Patty: We were excited that people were so interested in attending this concert. Tickets sold so quickly to the first show that we decided we really needed to do two shows. All the artists agreed right away that it was the best thing to do to make it the best night possible.

The new state-of-the-art York Performance Hall at AU is a beautiful facility that seats just 400 people. So both concerts will be very close and intimate, but tickets are selling very fast for those limited seats – we’re glad to be able to offer the concert twice.

THB: In 2014, you’re heading out on an intriguing cruise that offers guests to participate in a choir recording of “More Than Wonderful.” Do you recall that first recording session with Larnelle Harris — can you describe that session?

Patty: Larnelle and I actually never sang the song together until we were performing it live. When it came time to do the recording we just couldn’t get our schedules to line up, so Larnelle recorded his part first and then I came into the studio and recorded my part a little later in a different location. You can imagine that when we finally did sing it together it was just AWESOME.
