Tyrone “Tye” Tribbett (born January 26, 1976 Camden, New Jersey) is a gospel music singer, songwriter, keyboardist, choir director and founder of the Grammy-nominated and Stellar-Award winning gospel group Tye Tribbett & G.A. (short for ‘Greater Anointing.’)
Tribbett was raised in a Pentecostal Apostolic church in Camden, New Jersey. His father is a pastor and his mother is a minister as well as a well known disc jockey in the Philadelphia area.
Tye, who learned how to play keyboards before he could recite the alphabet, has been making bold declarations with his music for years prior to launching his gospel career.
In 1996, Tye founded a gospel choir, Greater Anointing (G.A.), consisting of a group of family and friends whose hearts were set simply on praising the Creator through the gift of great music. Tye knew from the beginning they’d tapped into something real and glorious. “That first rehearsal blew my mind,” he says. “The musicianship, the quality of the voices and the spirit of the choir, the character of everybody…I knew that this was it. I knew that this is what I was supposed to be doing.”
Today, Tye Tribbett and the members of Greater Anointing are a family united in ministry with everyone from Tye’s beloved wife of ten years to his brothers, sisters and cousins operating in varying capacities throughout G.A. Main Source: Tye Tribbett WorldWide
