• Performances include Carnegie Hall, Grand Ole Opry, Brooklyn Tabernacle, International stages and performed at Rev. Billy Graham's Farewell Crusade in New York City.
Jason Crabb was born to sing. And sing he would. Anyone who has ever heard him sing can bear witness! This Grammy-Award winning vocalists music roots run deep and he's logged the miles to prove it as a member of his award-winning family group, The Crabb Family. Baptized in a God-given talent pool, weaned on the hymnal and mentored by Bill Gaither himself, Jason Crabb hit the road at age 14 and has pursued his calling full-throttle ever since.

He’s performed at Carnegie Hall, become a ‘fan favorite’ at the Grand Ole Opry, appeared regularly on the Gaither Homecoming Series videos, is a 10-time Dove Award winner and was honored to sing for the Rev. Billy Graham’s farewell crusade in New York City. His voice has echoed in churches great and small at home in the U.S. and around the world. His Grammy Award winning debut recording Jason Crabb, features appearances by Vince Gill, Gaither Vocal Band and Sonya Isaacs.

Continuing the tradition his father, Gerald Crabb, taught him so well — that the best lyrics are rooted in real life, where real people live — Jason’s solo debut paints with broad strokes: Authenticity. Hope. Faith. Humanness.

“It’s the path you take, the step you make that makes you who you are;
it’s the life you live, the gifts you give, the love that’s in your heart.
Just try to do the best you can to be a better man.
You don’t have to walk on water, it’s how you walk on land.”
— from “Walk on Water”

With songs like “Walk on Water” (written by Bobby O. Pinson, Trent Tomlinson, Vicky McGehee) and GMA Dove Award Song of the Year “Sometimes I Cry,” (written by Gerald Crabb, one of the most prolific songwriters around with 22 #1 southern Gospel hits), Jason both acknowledges and encourages hurting people, leaving something more substantive than just ‘feel good entertainment.’

“People everywhere are hurting,” Jason says. “Their backs are against the wall. They’ve lost their jobs, their retirement. Big corporations are shutting down... We’re human and we stumble over everything we’re trying to be, to live up to.... ‘Sometimes I Cry’ is different from 98% of everything I’ve sung before. It’s a slow song. There’s no modulation at the end, no rousing note at the end; but the first time we did it live, people stood to their feet. They needed to hear it, to be reminded that’s it’s okay to be honest about where they are.”

This is Jason Crabb, singing the songs that make his own heart, his own voice, soar.

The Academy Theater opened on November 7, 1939 and was originally designed to house the Academy Awards. Sadly, however, the Academy Theater never did host the 'Oscars' but it was often the location of film premieres and served as a major suburban theater for the Fox West Coast Theatres chain. The Academy Theater continued to show movies until 1976 when it became the Academy Cathedral with Pastor Doyle Hart who is now celebrating his 90th Birthday! The Academy Cathedral is celebrating its 37th Anniversary.
