Award winning, International Recording Artist, Broadcaster and Speaker, Sandra Godley, is widely known as one of the UK’s leading contemporary gospel singers and influencers. She’s graced the stages of many national and international platforms and arenas, performed at The House of Commons twice, London’s iconic ‘Roundhouse’ for a Nelson Mandela celebration event as well as numerous appearances on various BBC/international radio/TV programmes. She has supported artists such as William McDowell and Jessy Dixon and is set to write a ‘Song for her City’ to mark its award as City of Culture 2021.

As a Broadcaster to the BBC with her own show ‘Upbeat’ and Presenter of 2 UCB Radio 2 shows, she has interviewed the likes of Paul Baloche, William McDowell and Nicole C Mullen etc. earning her a unique place in the world of Christian/secular music and media.

Sandra signed to Nashville based, US label C&C Music Group in 2013. She released her 3rd album, ‘Miracle’ with them which won her global recognition including the following awards:

MOBO nomination - Best Gospel Act
GEM Gospel award - Best Newcomer
Wise Woman in Music Award
GMA Italy Gospel Award - Best International Song
Appreciation Award by the Rwandan Sisterhood
PGM Award UK

She is a Trustee to global charity ‘Feed the Hungry’ supporting orphans across the globe. Her recent trip to Kiryandango Refugee camp in Uganda gave her first hand insight into the plight of thousands of refugees.

As a former Trustee to The Albany Theatre, a local based theatre in her hometown of Coventry, Sandra created many platforms not just to showcase other artists, but to also create a suite of inspirational programmes tackling subjects close to her heart eg homelessness, life skills and social justice.

Her ability to multi task and creatively problem solve has seen her address many of challenges facing worship leaders, musicians and artists by providing workshops, masterclasses and music showcases. In 2015, Sandra organised 2 major events in her home town of Coventry, show casing up and coming talent, TV celebrities as well as leading Christian artist and choirs. She also organised a major music and arts event which attracted crowds of over 100k.

In March 2018, inspired by the work of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Sandra launched the ‘Gosp-Ability choir’, a unique choir made of people who have faced either a mental or physical challenge. The choir was created to perform a specially written song as a wedding gift to the happy couple. As a result, the BBC commissioned a TV documentary be made following the journey of Sandra and the choir, this attracted worldwide acclaim and a wonderful letter of acknowledgement from the Prince himself. In August 2018, Sandra & her choir will open up on the main stage of the UK’s biggest free festival which last year attracted a crowd of over 179k people.

Sandra believes that music and mission play a crucial part in the life of local churches. Her mission is to help equip churches with the right tools to enable them to become more outward facing in their missional vision, whilst developing lifelong strategies for creative expression through music and the arts. Her new album, ‘Diamonds’, recorded in Nashville will be released later this year.

Sandra holds a Bachelor’s Honours Degree in Leadership and Management.
