The gospel world has lost a legend: AndraƩ Crouch is dead at age 72. According to Gannett News Service:
AndraĆ© Crouch, a gospel musician who bridged the worlds of the church and mainstream music for more than 50 years, died Thursday afternoon. The 72-year-old singer, songwriter and choir director had been hospitalized since Saturday in the Los Angeles area after suffering a heart attack.
Mr. Crouch, sometimes called “the father of modern gospel music,” led the choirs that sang on such hits as Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror” and Madonna’s “Like a Prayer.” As a songwriter, he penned several gospel favorites, most notably “The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power,” “My Tribute (To God Be the Glory)” and “Soon and Very Soon,” a song sung at Jackson’s public memorial service.
The L.A. native passed away at about 4:30 p.m. yesterday at Northridge Hospital Medical Center in Los Angeles, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Our prayers go out to the family....
