Very sad news for the music world and the world of gospel…

Preacher, Grammy winner, and  gospel music pioneer, Andraé Crouch, has died at the age of 72.

Crouch – who many call the “father of modern gospel” – died in the LA hospital he’d been hospitalized at since last Saturday. The cause of his death at this time is unknown.

Famous for such gospel classics as “Soon and Very Soon,” “Through It All,” “My Tribute,” and “The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power,” many credit Crouch for being a game changer in gospel as noted by Robert Darden on Christianity Today.

“Crouch was an innovator, a path-finder, a precursor in an industry noted for its conservative, often derivative approach to popular music. He combined gospel and rock, flavored it with jazz and calypso as the mood struck him and the song called for it.”

R.I.P. Andrae Crouch, a man whose gift was used for the glory of God across the world.
