Los Angeles, CA — Nine-time GRAMMY Award Winner and music legend Andraé Crouch lands at #1 on the Billboard Gospel songs chart this week with his hit single “Let The Church Say Amen” from the NAACP Image Award, GRAMMY Award and GMA Dove Award nominated CD, The Journey.
“It’s exciting to know that the music God has given me still speaks to the hearts of the listeners,” said Crouch. “Thank you, Jesus!”
“Let The Church Say Amen” includes guest vocals from Pastor Marvin Winans and was produced by Crouch’s label president and CEO, Riverphlo Entertainment, Luther “Mano” Hanes.
“It is truly amazing to see how God has blessed the music of Andraé Crouch in the 60s, the 70s, the 80s, the 90s, and now it’s 2012, and Andraé Crouch is once again #1,” said Hanes. “To me, this speaks volumes! I am humbled and honored to be a part of Andraé Crouch’s life and ministry. I thank God for the divine opportunity to produce one of Gospel’s greatest living legends.”
