I was so excited we were going to the convention maranatha 75. I was 14 years old. My cousin and I begged my aunt to take us to the convention. My sister and I were giving out tracks earlier and food to the less fortunate. OMG. I was thinking all day about meeting Andrae Crouch. I loved his music. Take me back dear Lord. Soon and very soon we’re going to meet the king. Bless the Lord oh my soul and all that is within me bless His holy name. I couldn’t wait to get to the convention to meet Andrae Crouch at the convention. The convention was crowded. They were people from all over the city there. Nicky Cruz was supposed to be the speaker. He gave an awesome speech. The crowd clapped and cheered. He really motivated us to win souls. Andre Crouch gave a wonderful performance. I couldn’t wait for the convention to end. We were ready to go out and win more souls for the Lord. We came to the end of the convention. I stood in the back of the hall waiting to see my gospel Idol Andrae Crouch. I was wondering what he say hi to me. or would he just shake my hand. I stood there and waited a long time.To my surprise out comes a young handsome young man with a beard. His skin was Brown and he had a big smile on his face. I couldn’t believe it it was Andrae Crouch. I ran to the front so that I could shake his hand. I finally got you the front and he said to me how are you young man. Nice to meet you. I couldn’t believe it. My gospel idol Andre crouch.He shook my hand and I went to the back of the room. I was so shocked and amazed There was my Gospel Idol. He was the nicest man I’ve ever met. I went home that night thinking. Wow! What a great experience. I played his music the rest of the night and pondered on my experience meeting him. It was the greatest experience in my young life.I will never forget it.
