Andrae Crouch was one of the most gifted songwriters and performers I’ve every met. And in reporting on the music business for a few years at the Today Show I met a lot of musicians. We were also good friends for decades and often when a group of us would get together we’d challenge Andrae to write a song on the spot. Without fail he’d come through, with melody, lyrics, & usually a chorus that had a hook which would stick in your mind the rest of the night. Of course his best songs were the gospel tunes that made him famous and became embedded in hearts and hymnals. This video has 4 of those gospels songs beginning with the 1st one he ever wrote at the age of 14 and ends with one of the last songs he wrote. I filmed this as his house about 3 yrs. ago. He was in bad health, his throat raw, voice scratchy, but the genius of his talent was not diminished. I recorded this for my own memories, but after his death I thought I should share this intimate moment with Andrae.
