Mabee Center emuseumartistheaders0017andrae-crouch-w750


Andrae Edward Crouch, was born in Los Angeles, California on July 1, 1943. Crouch, often referred to as the “father of modern gospel,” got his start by being a major figure in the Christian music industries during the 1960’s and 1970’s. He went from a couple of minor gospel choirs to becoming a producer for artists like Madonna, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Elton John, and many more. Andrae was the first gospel singer to cross over to mainstream Christian music.

Crouch’s songs have been performed by Paul Simon, Elvis Presley, and church choirs around the world. His awards include 8 Grammies, 6 GMA Dove awards, an Oscar nomination, and even a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. His latest album, “The Journey,” was even up for a Grammy. Be on the lookout for a documentary, book, TV show and other media projects about Andrae’s life in the near future!
