Gospel singer Sandi Patti says she felt victimized by the arson attack that destroyed her office. The anonymous caller told the Anderson Herald Bulletin her group started the blaze because Patti had "put herself on the pedestal of God." "It's one of the most paralyzing feelings I have ever felt in my life," Patti said outside her charred office Thursday, two days after the fire.

Fans of Christian music couldn't have wished for a better event than Friday's "Young Messiah" at the Anaheim Arena. The first half of the sold-out performance was devoted to a far-ranging selection of carols and hymns. Without exception, the individual singers were impressive. Sandi Patti, perhaps the best-known of the performers, was a diva without comparison. Her passionate version of "Oh Holy Night" was the showcase moment of the evening's opening segment.

For Sandi Patti, music is much more than a means of personal satisfaction: It's her way to get across something she truly believes in. "I love music. It's always been a wonderful way to express what's inside of me," says the 34-year-old five-time Grammy winning gospel singer, whose "Another Time . . . Another Place" won a 1990 Grammy for Best Pop Gospel album. "I believe in the message very much. It's a message that I have centered my life around, that Jesus Christ is very central in my life."

Each year at Christmastime, the "Young Messiah" tour acts as a sort of gospel cavalcade of stars. The lineup changes every year, but this fourth outing finds Sandi Patti back for the fourth time as the tour's trump card. Patti--the second-most popular gospel artist of the past decade, after crossover star Amy Grant--also acts as co-host of this year's tour, which comes to the Anaheim Arena tonight.

Unlike most of the other performers who have had million-selling albums from an evangelical Christian base, inspirational singer Sandi Patti makes few strides toward pop ecumenicalism. Patti focuses primarily on songs of worship and praise and proceeds in concert from the assumption that her audience is made up entirely of the faithful. Her appearance on Tuesday in the heart of Hollywood at the Pantages Theatre was no exception to the bold game plan.

For singer Sandi Patti, music has long been much more than an enriching and satisfying form of artistic expression: It's a means of conveying the ideals and values that she considers paramount. "I love music. It's always been a wonderful way to express what's inside of me," says the 34-year-old five-time Grammy winner, whose "Another Time . . . Another Place" for the Word label won a 1990 Grammy for Best Pop Gospel Album.

Like Amy Grant, Christian pop singer Sandi Patti is reaching out to a wider audience by playing traditional pop venues like the Pacific Amphitheatre and by using contemporary rock and pop-music frameworks for her messages of salvation. Backed by a vocal trio and an orchestra Saturday at the Pacific, the Indiana-born singer demonstrated a voice of crystal-shattering power and range during her 2 1/2-hour show.
