*Gospel legend Andrae Crouch has called off his upcoming commitments after he was hospitalized with an undisclosed illness.

The singer was admitted to the hospital on Dec. 1 and has since pulled out of his planned appearances on the “Let the Church Say Amen” tour throughout December.

No further details about his health scare have been released, but Crouch’s sister Sandra insists the 72 year old is recovering well.

She tells Al.com, “Andrae is talking and alert and resting comfortably. On behalf of Andrae and the Crouch Family, we appreciate your prayers for a quick and speedy recovery.”

The seven-time Grammy Award winner has previously struggled with diabetes.
