Yahoo LAUNCHCAST Song Of The Day-Tye Tribbett & G.A.
Artist:Tye Tribbett & G.A.
The success of gospel artist Tye Tribbett shows that sometimes luck plays a big part in success in the music industry. Tribbett had been in the background for several years before being spotted by the right person. He was born Jan. 26, 1977 in Camden, NJ. His dad is a church pastor and his mom was choir director. She is now his manager. Tribbett was a keyboard wizard as a child. He first formed his group Greater Anointing in 1996. He first surfaced on The Prince Of Egypt soundtrack performing Let Go Let God with Erica & Tina Atkins AKA Mary Mary. He became a keyboard player for hire and toured with Faith Hill in 2000. Then he met James Poyser of the group Soulquarians and was hired to play keyboards for R & B singer Vivian Green. While performing at a showcase for Columbia Records president Don Ienner, Ienner not only signed Green but asked about the guy playing keyboards. Tye Tribbett signed with Sony Urban and his 2004 CD Life topped the gospel charts. His 2006 follow up CD Victory did even better and made a dent in the Billboard Hot 200. Tribbett's act is a very energetic school theme and it obviously appeals to young people. He writes his own songs and produces with Poyser. His new CD Stand Out is coming in April. Here's Tye Tribbett & G.A. performing Victory on the 2007 BET Celebration Of Gospel.
