    Truly one of the contemporary Christian music's living legends, Grammy Award-winning vocalist. Sherman Andrus has successfully completed more than 39 years in Gospel Music. Even as a young man, Sherman was never a stranger to the Christian music scene. In fact, music and performing have been a part of his life as far back as he can remember. In addition to his professional career that has spanned almost four decades, he grew up singing with his mother's Gospel group in Louisiana. As he has recorded or appeared on more than 30 Christian albums, the name Sherman Andrus is familiar to all lovers of Gospel music regardless of one's age or preferred style.

    As an original member of Andrae Crouch and the disciples from 1964 to 1970, Sherman Andrus was a vital influence on the group's first popular recording. Sherman broke down both musical and racial barriers when he became the lead singer of The Imperials, and all white Southern Gospel group, in 1971. His five years of accomplishments with the Imperials were topped off when the group won a Grammy Award for one of contemporary Christian music's first anthems, "No Shortage".

    Shortly after his experience with the Imperials, Sherman along with Terry Blackwood (another former Imperial), co-founded the enormously successful contemporary Christian group Andrus, Blackwood & Company. During their successful nine years of recording, the group became best known for their Contemporary Christian Music Magazine Number 1 hits, "Jesus, You're So Wonderful", "Soldiers of the Light", and "Step Out of the Night". Since 1986, Sherman has maintained a very successful solo career which has allowed him to expand his ministry to third-world countries, including Poland, Nigeria, Indonesia, and Haiti; and other arenas besides churches or the concert stage, like prisons, schools, and hospitals. In addition, Sherman has unselfishly counseled and lent his song writing and singing abilities to the projects of many new Christian artists. In august of 1997,Sherman was invited by Elvis Presley Enterprises to participate in a memorial concert commemorating the 20th anniversary of Elvis's death. Since 1997 he has toured Australia, Japan, and northern Europe as part of Elvis The Concert. A presentation of Elvis on video in concert with his original cast of musicians and backup singers, "live". Sherman is loved and appreciated by audiences of all ages, and as the Lord continues to provide opportunities for his ministry, he will continue to uplift and encourage through song.

    On April 2, 1998, Sherman Andrus was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, as a member of The Imperials AND as a founding member of Andrae Crouch And The Disciples. Sherman who grew up Mermentau, Louisiana and studied music at Southern University resides in Honolulu Hawaii with his wife Winnie. Their son, Sherman Jr., his wife Mary, son Patrick Sherman, and daughter Samantha live in Portland, Oregon.
