By now you should have heard that Gospel legend Andrae Crouch passed away last week at the age of 72. His historical credits go on and on, but he is best known for bridging the gap between Gospel and contemporary music by working with artists like Michael Jackson (Man In The Mirror) and Madonna (Like A Prayer) on their gospel-esque records. Crouch was also one of three gospel artists to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.
Most importantly, Crouch should be known for being a legendary musician whose music has passed through generations and centuries. He showed us all that you can live a spiritual life while also being connected to what is happening in the world, along with being an essential part of it. Below is one of my favorite records by Andrae Crouch titled Soon and Very Soon.
RIP to the gospel great Andrae Crouch!
