RIP – Sandra Crouch, GRAMMY Award-Winning Gospel Singer, Twin Sister Of Andrae’ Crouch

Sandra Crouch, Grammy-winning gospel artist, preacher, and the twin sister of late gospel great Andraé Crouch, has passed away at the age of 81.

As reported by the Journal of Gospel Music, Crouch transitioned on March 17, 2024. Her death was confirmed on the Facebook page of New Christ Memorial Church in California, where she served as Senior Pastor. The church’s Assistant Pastor, Kenneth J. Cook, issued a statement.

Sandra’s entry into gospel music came with the formation of the group The COGICs, along with Andraé, Billy Preston and others. The group gained notoriety for the song, “The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power,” a song based loosely on an older hymnal that has since become a classic.

Later, as a member of Andraé Crouch & The Disciples, Sandra would reach multiple audiences with masterful blends of gospel, rock, folk, jazz, soul and R&B. Notable hits include “Soon and Very Soon,” “Bless His Holy Name,” “My Tribute (To God Be the Glory),” and more.

As a solo artist, Sandra’s album, We Sing Praises, won the 1984 GRAMMY for Best Female Soul Gospel Performance. She was also an accomplished percussionist, featured on tambourine on several hits by the Jackson 5 (including “I Want You Back” and “ABC”). Read More
