Sandra McCracken — singer, songwriter and modern-day hymn writer — will bring her songs of hope and faith to Calvin College’s Chapel for a concert Thursday, April 20, at 7 p.m.


General admission tickets are $5 and tickets are available.



McCracken’s soulful, folk-gospel sound is in full evidence on her latest recording, 2016’s “God’s Highway” — the lyrics to the title song includes the lines: “I see the shore, from troubled seas. this tiny ship that carries me, it is not yet, but it will be. so heaven come …”


The new album, according to her website, “blurs the lines of what church music sounds like, captivating and inviting audiences to sing along.” Many of her songs, such as “We Will Feast In The House Of Zion” and “Thy Mercy My God”, have settled into regular rotation in Christian worship services internationally. She is also a founding member of Indelible Grace Music and Rain For Roots (children’s music) and has been a guest writer for Art House America, She Reads Truth, The Gospel Coalition, Christianity Today and RELEVANT Magazine.
