  1. I grew up with the musuc of Andre Crouch. I consider him a prolific writer and true man of God. His songs will live in my heart forever and I hope that when I get to heaven I’ll join him in the heavenly choir. Rest In Peace Andre. A job well done! A race well ran. A song well sung!

  2. I am crying uncontrollably!!! Oh, Andrae, I love you and I will miss you terribly. I love Sandra and all that had help and bless them through the years.

    In the 70’s, this the first time I ever went to a Billy Graham’s crusade, there was Andrae Crouch, Nicky Cruz. After the service was over, I went to have my Bible autographed (after Andrae and Nicky autographed my Bible, I was so touch and happy, I went back to seat down on the bench, there was a guy next to me, I was not looking, he stole my Bible) and I ask both to autograph my Bible to Andrae Crouch, he looked at me with such a humble angelical smile, his eyes with such love that went right down deep in my heart, Christ like. That was my first and last time that I ever so Andrae very close in person. I brought Just Andrae LP’s, cd’s and many more. I cherished all the songs. I just love Andrea and the powerful inspirational songs and music God put in Andrae’s heart and soul that will live be in our hearts forever till one day we will all be together again.

    Love u all, let’ s all pray for our beautiful Sandra for comfort and strength always, amen.
