Trig identity for linear combination of sines

Hi:

I have a function which is a linear combination of sines, of the form

y = a*sin(x+q) + b*sin(x+r) + c*sin(x+t)

and I am looking for a trignometric identity that would reduce the above to the form

y = A*sin(x+Z)

I would also like to find out how to implement this rule in Mathematica. 

Thanks
Chelly
