Crouch, an award-winning singer and composer, also worked as a producer and arranger for such artists as Michael Jackson, Madonna, Elton John and Diana Ross. Although he had studied elementary education in college and worked as a counselor for recovering drug abusers, he was driven to a musical career. Crouch formed a group called the Disciples in the mid-1960s and released his first album, Take the Message Everywhere, in 1971. In 1972 he launched his solo career with Just Andrae while continuing to tour with the Disciples, including sold-out concerts at New York’s Carnegie Hall in 1975 and 1979. Crouch and the Disciples won the first of several Grammy Awards in 1978. ~ Los Angeles Times: Andraé Crouch Obituary ~ January 8, 2015 © Los Angeles Times
