Before there was Kirk Franklin there was Andre Crouch

Andre Crouch died today. His music was the soundtrack of my youth. His song I’ll Be thinking of You was a love song with crossover appeal. His song To God Be the Glory was a perennial favorite at my home church. His song Through it All still stands the test of time and his song Let the Church Say Amen is a favorite in the church. Andre Crouch also wrote the score for The Color Purple. He was multi-talented. He was crossing over when Kirk Franklin was learning to walk. He was a special gift and he will be missed.
