The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum will honor the legacy of Andraé Crouch in a tribute to rock’s gospel roots during Rock My Soul: A Gospel Music Celebration. The seven-time Grammy Award–winning helped usher in contemporary gospel music during a career that spanned over five decades and included many gospel hits. Crouch also served as vocal arranger for Madonna and Michael Jackson, and his choir can be heard in Michael Jackson’s number one hit “Man in the Mirror.” Tribute performers will include Marvin Winans, CeCe Winans and Donnie McClurkin. The event is free but an admission ticket is necessary.
“I am honored that the Rock Hall’s Rock My Soul Gospel Concert is celebrating the life of my best friend and twin brother. Andraé’s music has always had a global reach, so to be celebrated by such a distinguished organization is a blessing. Having Mano Hanes, Pastor Marvin Winans, CeCe Winans and Donnie McClurkin come together to sing his music will be a treat and yet another milestone to remind us all of how blessed we continue to be through the music of a true legend, Andraé Crouch,” said Sandra Crouch.
The concert is part of Cleveland Rock Week, a series of events leading up to the 30th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, presented by Klipsch Audio, on Saturday, April 18 at historic Public Hall.
