Meet Kathy Troccoli
Kathy Troccoli has performed before the Pope and a National Football Championship crowd. She has amassed numerous national television appearances including "The Tonight Show" and "Live! with Regis and Kathie Lee," and landed singles on the top of Adult Contemporary, Top 40 and Christian radio charts. She has shared the stage with Jay Leno, Michael Bolton, BoyzIIMen and dueted with Andy Williams and The Beach Boys.
She is Kathy Troccoli. An 18-year Christian music veteran and award-winning, Grammy nominated singer and songwriter, author, speaker, and television series host, she's an artist known as much for her generosity and humanitarian efforts as for her powerful vocals. Her undeniable talent that has brought her the awards and accolades of the industry: three Dove awards, 24 career Dove nominations, two Grammy nominations, two Billboard awards. But it is her compassion and strong convictions that define Kathy as a person and an artist, and her desire to share Jesus and minister hope that compels her. "The most important thing to me is that people are able to embrace the lyrics and feel what I sing," says Kathy, "If I can't impart love...mercy...compassion...hope... then it's not worth it to me." And in typical Troccoli style, her latest release Love Has A Name continues to reflect Kathy's passion and purpose. "I purpose to pour out my heart," says Kathy when asked about her writing, "to share the experiences I have been through, to offer hope, and to speak truth."
As well as philanthropic endeavors and keeping one of her busiest concert touring schedules to date, Kathy is also forging new ground finding success not only in music, but as a communicator in every aspect of her career. Spring boarding off her success as an author (My Life Is In Your Hands, Different Roads, and her collaboration with Dee Brestin on Falling In Love With Jesus, available January 2001), Kathy has also become one of the most requested women’s conference speakers internationally, speaking at such prominent events as Women Of Faith, Time Out For Women, and Heritage Keepers, not to mention the other various speaking engagements she has participated in including Bill and Gloria Gaither’s Praise Gathering. Having spoken at over 75 conferences in the last three years, Troccoli counts these times of ministry to women as one of her greatest joys. “I couldn’t have done this at 25,” she says, “I am secure with who I am and where God is calling me. I am watching Him touch women’s lives through the sharing of my struggles and heart. It is truly amazing.”
Kathy Troccoli's talent has provided many opportunities for her as an artist. Her pursuit of excellence in her career has afforded her to live out many of the dreams she held as a young girl in Long Island, New York. But perhaps it is the chorus of "On My Way To You" that best describes Kathy—her passion, her goals, her career and her life, "I'll keep on spreading Your word/Giving Your life/Holding out hope/Doing what's right/Praying for people/And lifting them high/Showing Your love/Being Your light/On my way home to You." The power of the song, the power of the words, and the power of the heart...that Power is what changes people's lives, and to Kathy Troccoli, if it's not about that, it's just not worth it.
