About Tye Tribbett:
Born in Camden, New Jersey, Tye Tribbett is the son of two preachers. Growing up surrounded by hymns and gospel music, Tye learned to make music at an early age. As a teenager, he honed his skills as a keyboardist by accompanying such regional notables as Steve Middleton and the Tri-State Mass Choir of the Edwin Hawkins Music & Arts Seminar. In 1996, Tye founded a gospel choir, Greater Anointing (G.A.), consisting of a group of friends whose hearts were set simply on praising the Creator through the gift of great music.
G.A burst on the national stage when their song "Let Go, Let God" was featured on the soundtrack of Steven Spielburg's hit animated feature film, "The Prince of Egypt". Tribbett and G.A. soon found themselves sharing the stage with such superstars as Gloria Estefan, LeAnn Rhimes, Elton John, Luther Vandross, and Stevie Wonder. An invitation from mega-producer David Foster to perform on stage at the annual City of Hope event at Universal Studios in Hollywood led to national tours singing backup for Faith Hill, Tim McGraw and Don Henley. G.A. 'retired' in 2009, allowing its members to pursue their personal goals and dreams. To date, Tye has released five albums (three with G.A) and has sold over 1 million records worldwide in his career. He has won two Grammy® Awards, four Stellar Gospel Music Awards, two GMA Dove Awards and a Soul Train Music Award.
