Patty to deliver Indy 500 anthem
INDIANAPOLIS — Christian music singer Sandi Patty will perform the national anthem at Sunday’s Indianapolis 500 for a record sixth time.

Patty, who now lives in Oklahoma, says it’s a “thrill” to return to Indiana and participate in the event that “showcases Indianapolis as one of the best cities in the world.”
Patty has sold more than 11 million albums and is the most decorated female vocalist in contemporary Christian music.
