Andraé Edward Crouch (July 1, 1942 – January 8, 2015) was an American gospel singer, songwriter, arranger, record producer and pastor. Referred to as “the father of modern gospel music” by contemporary Christian and gospel music professionals, Crouch was known for his compositions The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power, My Tribute (To God Be the Glory) and Soon and Very Soon. In secular music, he was known for his collaborative work during the 1980s and 1990s with Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Quincy Jones, as well as conducting choirs that sang on the Michael Jackson hit Man in the Mirror and Madonna’s Like a Prayer.
Keith Gordon Green (October 21, 1953 – July 28, 1982) was an American contemporary Christian music pianist, singer, and songwriter originally from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, New York. Beyond his music, Green is best known for his strong devotion to Christian evangelism and challenging others to the same. He wrote some notable songs, including Your Love Broke Through, You Put This Love in My Heart, and Asleep in the Light. He is also known for numerous popular modern hymns, including O Lord, You’re Beautiful and There Is A Redeemer, written by his wife, Melody.
The Crouch & Green Gospel tribute show will take place on the 8 June 2018, at 19:00 at the Siloam Auditorium, at the corner of Block and Westphall Streets.
