Just Because is the 21st studio album by the Christian music vocal group The Imperials, released in 1976 on Impact/Benson Records. This would be the final album to feature vocalists Sherman Andrus and Terry Blackwood, as the two would go on to form the Christian music duo Andrus, Blackwood and Company and is also the final album they recorded on the Impact/Benson music label as they were signed with Word Records. The group does a cover of Chuck Girard's signature song "Sometimes Alleluia." The Imperials earned a Grammy Award nomination for Best Gospel Performance (Other Than Soul Gospel) for Just Because. The album is produced by Phil Johnson.
