The music world has lost a legend. Gospel singer and songwriter Andraé Crouch died Thursday after being admitted to the hospital last weekend following a heart attack.
In his 72 years on earth, Crouch worked with stars like Michael Jackson, Madonna and Baraba Mandrell. He was also a frequent guest on CBN’s The 700 Club.
His death caps decades of an influential life and ministry.
Crouch earned his position as the father of modern gospel with hits like, Soon and Very Soon, Through It All and Can’t Nobody Do Me Like Jesus.
It’s a legendary career that began when the California native wrote his first hit at just 14, not long after overcoming a stuttering problem.
