Andra’e Crouch's career was perhaps the most phenomenal of all successes in Pacoima. Grammy award winning Andra’e bridged the gap between gospel and mainstream music working with major stars such as Michael Jackson, Madonna, and Quincy Jones. His eight grammy's were instrumental in the merging of pop, contemporary gospel and soul.
His father Benjamin began holding religious services at their family's Pacoima home in 1951 and later founded the New Christ Memorial Church of God in Christ. The church grew to have a tremendous following and still operates today. Andra'e passed away in 2015 leaving a legacy for Pacoima of success and pride.
