Casting Crowns has shared the news that their one-time drummer, Andy Williams, has died.
The band took to their official Instagram account to share the initial news about his motorcycle accident, and updated fans on Friday about his passing.
A Go Fund Me has been set up in his honor.
Early this morning, around 1:00am, Andy Williams went to be with Jesus. He fought a great fight, but the injuries that he suffered took a toll on his physical body. You prayed along with us that Andy would be healed. You prayed along with us that Andy would wake up. You prayed along with us that God would perform a miracle. While we mourn that Andy isn’t here with us, and that we didn’t get to witness the miracle we longed for here on earth, all of our prayers were answered. He is healed, he is awake and we believe that he is more alive today than he has ever been. We hold fast to Paul’s words that we look not to the things that are seen, but to those things that are unseen, for they are eternal. We celebrate that Andy is in the arms of his Savior and we are grateful for the memories and laughter that Andy brought to all who knew him. We can’t thank you enough for your prayers, support, and unending love. You have walked with us through this very difficult journey and we felt you there the entire way. We love you so much and we thank you for the support. At this time the family has requested that you respect their time together and allow them to receive some much needed rest. Please hold off on reaching out with texts and phone calls for a few days.Kelly, Aden, Asher, Mary Catherine
It was just last month that lead singer Mark Hall shared the initial news of Andy’s accident.
“Andy Williams, our beloved drummer, was struck by a vehicle while on his motorcycle on his way to church.”
Currently, Andy is “on a ventilator with severe trauma to his body and brain.” Casting Crowns said that he is alive, but doctors want him to “wake up on his own.”
Please friends, lets pray for Andy’s miraculous healing, and peace for his family.
Great servant of the most high God ..we will see you in the kingdom of God …
