Sandi Patti and the Friendship Company (1989)

Updated: Apr 7

Sandi Patti and the Friendship Company is the tenth studio and first Children's music album by Christian singer Sandi Patty, released in the spring of 1989 on Word Records. The album is produced by Patty and Greg Nelson with John Helvering (Patty's first husband) and Dan Johnson as executive producers.

The theme on this album is about friendship and how special children are to God. It features a children's choir and Gerbert, a popular television character based on the late 1980s television series of the same name, that teaches children about kindness and friendship, making good choices, the importance of loving your neighbor and learning a valuable lesson in life, which is pretty much what this album is about.

Sandi Patti and the Friendship Company went to number one on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart, giving Patty her third number one album. In 1990, Patty won two Dove Awards for Female Vocalist of the Year and Children's Music Album of the Year at the 21st GMA Dove Awards. Patty has performed some songs from the album in the concert video The Make His Praise Glorious Live Concert.
