The Finest Moments (1989)

Updated: Apr 7

The Finest Moments is an official compilation album by Christian singer Sandi Patty, released on October 23, 1989 by Word Records. Although not your typical "best of" album, this collection of songs consists of some live highlights from her 1983 live album More Than Wonderful - Live, some choice songs from the first ten years of her recording career from 1979's Sandi's Song to 1986's Morning Like This and one brand new song "Exalt the Name" recorded specifically for this collection co-written by CCM singer - songwriter Margaret Becker. The Finest Moments peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart and was certified Gold in 1993 by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for sales of 500,000 copies.
