ARTICLE VISION (1/5/14)

Last night BREATHEcast reported on the health condition of legendary gospel singer Andrae' Crouch. The initial information was based on a Facebook status written by fellow gospel artist Carman Liciardello. His status has since been pulled, and out of respect for the family and the new statement released by Crouch's sister Sandra, we have replaced the text with the official statement and have also removed any speculative reports of his health. Please see the release below:

OFFICIAL STATEMENT ON ANDRAE' CROUCH FROM SISTER SANDRA CROUCH

Monday, January 5, 2014
"On Saturday, January 3rd, my brother, Andrae’ Crouch, was taken to the hospital so that medical staff could more directly address some serious health complications that had arisen. At this time, Andrae’ is being attended to by a medical team, and we are so grateful for their wonderful care. 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."

Just a few days ago BC reported on Crouch being in high spirits as he commented on the rescheduling of his "Let the Church Say Amen Tour" with his all-star tribute band. Read about that article here.
