Bio

Sandra-Onal-Bio1Sandra Onal is a passionate voice in the body of Christ who brings her desire to share the love of God through music. Born in Puno, Peru into a musical family while her parents were in the mission field, her love for singing was instilled at an early age.  As life situations and circumstances come and go, Sandra has learned that the only way to fulfill her heart is in having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Sandra has made it her life mission to give all her talents to our most High God! Her heart is to share the love of Jesus Christ by sharing the miraculous way that God has changed her life and how He continues to refine her. It is a matter of the heart. Psalms 68:1 says, “Let God arise and all His enemies scatter.” It is with this intent that Sandra will sing lifting the name of God and allow His Holy Spirit and presence to move in the hearts of all who listen. Sandra is married to the love of her life, Erol Onal, and is overjoyed to have the title of “Mom” to their daughter, Eliana Sophia. They reside in Atlanta, GA.

Sandra’s ministry purpose is to share the redemptive, everlasting, and unconditional love of God through praise and worship music. Sandra’s prayer is that through the songs of her debut CD project, Lavished by Grace, the listener will be taken on the incredible journey of knowing Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior!

… In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ… Eph 1:7-9

Sandra has performed nationally and internationally with various musical groups as well as independently.  She has been featured on the “In Touch Ministry” program, which is seen and heard domestically and internationally on more than 2,400 radio and television outlets in more than 50 languages.  She has also been a featured soloist in several music and media productions:  “2010 & 2011 Bible Conference”, “2009-2010 Song of a Lifetime”, “2009-2011 First Family Christmas.” She was honored to be a soloist in the recording of First Baptists’Atlanta Worship Choir album, “Moments.”

Sandra praises Jesus for allowing her the awesome opportunity to call First Baptist Church of Atlanta her home church. Her spiritual life continues to be nourished and strengthened under the anointed teachings of her pastor, Dr. Charles F. Stanley. It is there, where she helps lead worship under the excellent direction and leadership of her minister of music, Pastor Rodney N. Brooks, and where she sings alongside many gifted musicians and singers that yearn to give God all the glory!
