Le Voyage (1993)

Updated: 5 days ago


Le Voyage is the 13th studio album by Christian singer Sandi Patty, released in 1993 on Word Records. The album is produced by Greg Nelson.


It's a concept album and it tells the story, done in a musical setting, featuring Patty as a character named Traveler, and she comes from a long line of Sojouners. It has been described as a modern retelling of John Bunyan's 1678 book Pilgrim's Progress featuring songs about traveling on a journey of faith. Le Voyage continues her inspirational sound but also adds some upbeat pop and adult contemporary sounds as well. Patty re-records a new version of "Unexpected Friends," originally from her 1990 album Another Time...Another Place and also features a duet with fellow Christian singer/songwriter and former Kansas lead singer John Elefante called "Home Will Find You." All songs were written by Nelson and Bob Farrell.


This would be the last album using her professional last name "Patti." Patty also released a companion book to go with the album. Le Voyage tops the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart and was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album. In 1994, her music video for the first single "Hand On My Shoulder" won Short Form Music Video of the Year at the 25th GMA Dove Awards.
