Biography

Brooklyn, New York, USA (1982 – present)

Kathy Troccoli (born Kathleen Colleen Troccoli - 24 June 1958 - Brooklyn, New York, USA) is a contemporary Christian singer, author, and speaker.

Nalle assisted Troccoli in her career, helping the young artist record demos which would be given to Michael Blanton and Dan Harrell (Amy Grant’s brother-in-law), who formed the Reunion label to start her career in 1982 with Stubborn Love, A second album, Heart and Soul, was released in 1984 and gave her first Grammy nomination a year later, followed by Images in 1986. Troccoli also provided backing vocal for Taylor Dayne’s song “I’ll Be Your Shelter” in 1989/1990.

Miss Troccoli moved at age three and was raised in the East Islip community in Long Island, and graduated from East Islip High School, where as a senior, fellow classmates included fellow CCM artist Margaret Becker (a junior) and three-sport star Norman Esiason, Jr, a freshman. At 15, she lost her father to colon cancer. She also lost her mother to breast cancer in 1991, shortly before her album, Pure Attraction, hit the shelves with her number one mainstream hit, “Everything Changes”. Before this album came out, she had taken a five year break from the music world to do some “soul searching” and deal with her bulimia.

After her mother’s death, she paired with Reunion again in 1991 with Pure Attraction, which launched her on the national charts was “Everything Changes.” But ironically, it was “Help Myself To You” which became her first #1 hit in her ten-year career, and began a string of GMA Music Awards nominations, including numerous attempts at Female Vocalist.

    Kathy's album "Pure Attraction" is one of my favourite albums! I enjoy all of the songs. However, my favourites are "Everything Changes", "Love Has Found Me Here", "You're Still Here" and "You and I" and a few others.
