Sandra Crouch, sister of legendary gospel singer Andrae' Crouch, says that her brother was taken to the hospital this past Saturday to address "some serious health complications that have arisen."
Crouch, 72, has faced numerous health issues over the past few years including various forms of cancer and congestive heart failure. He was rushed to the hospital in October 2013 due to an episode related to his diabetic condition. Sandra Crouch is asking for continued prayers for her brother.
"At this time, Andrae' is being attended to by a medical team, and we are so grateful for their wonderful care," Sandra said. "We are also so grateful for the many thousands of people around the world who are praying for Andrae' right now. We ask for your continued prayer that Andrae' will respond positively to the medical attention being given to him at this time, and that he will fully recover from this current health complication.'
A gospel legend, Crouch has enjoyed over 50 years in the music industry and has won several Grammy and Dove Awards. He was also inducted into the Gospel Music Association's Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 1998.
Andrae' and Sandra Crouch serve as pastors of New Christ memorial Church in San Fernando, California.
