Los Angeles, LA — Nine-time GRAMMY ® Award Winner and music legend Andraé Crouch received recognition for his latest project when the NAACP announced the nominations for the 43rd Annual NAACP Image Awards. Crouch received a nomination for Outstanding Gospel Album (Traditional or Contemporary) for The Journey.
“This truly is a blessing to be recognized by the NAACP,” said Crouch. “I’m honored to receive the nomination on behalf of The Journey and Gospel music.”
The NAACP Image Awards is the nation’s premier event celebrating the outstanding achievements and performances of people of color in the arts as well as those individuals or groups who promote social justice. The 43rd Annual NAACP Awards broadcast live Friday, February 17, 2012 on NBC at 8:00 p.m. EST.
Whether in the pulpit or in a recording studio, Crouch’s desire is always to impact people with the Gospel. The Journey CD showcases an artist at the peak of his creative form. There are several commanding performances including longtime friend Tata Vega on “Somebody Told Me About Jesus” and “He Has a Plan for Me.” While Chaka Khan and Sheila E. lend their distinctive gifts to the upbeat anthem, “All Around the World.” The incomparable Kim Burrell along with Take 6 beautifully deliver the stirring ballad, “Faith” while Daniel Johnson takes the spotlight on the warm, soulful “My Life.” Pastor Marvin Winans appears on the chart-climbing current single, “Let The Church Say Amen.”
