Sandra McCracken has released her brand new Integrity Music single, "I Will Sing". Based on Psalm 89, this single speaks of how we must give praise and offer back thanks to God, no matter what our circumstance. A relevant and timely message. 

"Right now, we're all living in a time where we've had to slow down our plans and agenda, adjust them, or completely change them because they've been obliterated. With all that comes patience. It's easier said than done, but whether it's pandemic sickness, death, job loss, financial struggle, or other hard and paining life moments... God is still GOOD! And I want to sing his praise forever."

Sandra was born into a house with music always streaming from the record player. Growing up in St. Louis, MO, she moved to Tennessee in 1995 to study music and has faithfully carved out a career as an independent singer-songwriter and modern-day hymn writer. McCracken has been writing songs and words, recording, producing, podcasting and leading church music since graduating from Belmont University in 1999.

Although she has spent the majority of her years outside the main streams of Christian music, her songs have become a staple in churches internationally. Songs like "We Will Feast In The House Of Zion," "God's Highway," and "Thy Mercy My God" are theologically rich, singable anthems that have crossed barriers between denominations and generations. Alongside gospel songs and group singing, her alt-folk ballads like "Fool's Gold," "You Hold It All Together," and "Ten Thousand Angels" have been recorded by All Sons And Daughters, The Porters Gate, Audrey Assad, and featured in indie films and ABC's "Grey's Anatomy."  

In 2012, McCracken partnered with Sally Lloyd Jones (author of The Jesus Storybook Bible), Ellie Holcomb and friends to produce the first of four collaborative children's albums as a side project called, Rain for Roots. She is also a founding member of Indelible Grace Music and has regularly promoted the joyful use and circulation of traditional hymns.

Beyond the melodies, McCracken is a regular columnist for Christianity Today's "Pending Resolution." She has also made contributions as a guest writer for The Gospel Coalition, She Reads TruthArt House America, and Relevant Magazine.Inspired to give back to the community, McCracken has partnered over the years with International Justice Mission, Blood Water Mission and World Vision and currently serves as the Volunteer Arts Coordinator for A Rocha USA, a faith-based conservation organization that is represented in 19 countries.

Since 2000, McCracken has recorded more than twelve albums. Her most recent, 2018's Songs From The Valley, received glowing reviews and increasing streaming numbers on Spotify and social platforms. McCracken lives in Nashville, Tennessee with her husband, Tim Nicholson and three children. For more information, please visit
