LISTEN: Jesus Christ, Andrae Crouch, and You (Gospel Light Minute X with Daniel Whyte III)
The incomparable Andrae Crouch said in one of his famous songs, “Jesus is the answer, for the world today, Above Him there’s no other, Jesus is the way.”
Millions of people around the world were touched by the life and music of Andrae Crouch. I was one of them. I remember as a little boy watching the Dallas Cowboys play and listening to Andrae Crouch’s songs playing in the background. Although I was not saved as a young person, I heard and loved Andrae’s songs even though I did not really know what they meant.
