andrae crouch*It seems great Andrae Crouch had a medical scare the other night.

The gospel great was rushed to the hospital Sunday night after falling ill in the shower at his L.A. home, according to TMZ.

The 71-year-old Grammy winner behind “Let the Church Say Amen” tells us he was “overcome by heat” during his shower … and shouted for his assistant and his twin sister to call for help.

An ambulance arrived to the scene — and Crouch was transported to a nearby hospital. A few hours later, doctors determined Crouch was OK, and he was cleared to go home.

We spoke to Crouch … who tells us he suffers from diabetes and suspects his condition contributed to the incident in the shower.

Update: Andrae Crouch says he feels better now, but adds, “Diabetes is no fun.”

He also said, “Thanks to all my fans for all your prayers and support.”
