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.
The former longtime resident of Anderson and five-time Grammy Award winner last sang the national anthem at the 500 in 1992. She also performed it in 1987, 1988, 1990 and 1991.
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.
