Tye Tribbett is a gospel music singer who founded the Grammy Award-nominated and Stellar Award-winning gospel group Tye Tribbett & G.A. (short for ‘Greater Anointing’). He said:

He was born on January 26, 1976, in Camden, New Jersey, USA.

Tribbett has two sisters as well as a brother named Thaddaeus Tribbett. His mother was a minister and a DJ, whereas his father was a pastor.

Tye was raised in an Apostolic Pentecostal church in Camden, New Jersey.

In 1996, he founded a gospel choir, Greater Anointing (G.A.), consisting of a group of friends and family whose hearts were set simply on praising the Creator through the gift of great music.

In 1998, they broke into the popular mainstream with a group of performances on The Prince of Egypt (Inspirational) album, one of 3 high-profile soundtrack collections that were released for the Academy Award-winning animated film from DreamWorks.

In 2000, Tye toured with Faith Hill, leading to work with Usher, Don Henley, Will Smith, Sting, and Justin Timberlake.

On Friday, November 30, 2007, Tribbett performed at The Experience Concert in Lagos, Nigeria, alongside Cece Winans, Kurt Carr, Israel Houghton, Don Moen, and a host of others. The inspirational concert was organized by the House on the Rock Church.

In 2009, he decided to retire from Greater Anointing, releasing them to pursue personal dreams and goals while he auditioned for new background singers.

In 2010, Tribbett released his first album without GA, simply titled Fresh. He declared:

“Fresh means restored, new creature and it’s my announcement that nothing is the same, my thinking, my business, my patterns, everything is new.”

For ”Fresh,” he produced and wrote a majority of the album; however, Tribbett also solicited assistance from a small handful of talented artists along the way for the very first time.

On August 6, 2013, the album “Greater Than” was released. In 2014, this album earned him two Grammy Awards, including Best Gospel Album.

Tye said:

”And that’s just what he does on his latest album Greater Than, Tribbett’s debut on the Motown Gospel label.”

He later added:

”It’s more than new music, it’s the start of a movement, and Tribbett is happy to lead the way.”

In a different interview, Tye declared:

”These songs are a reminder to the body of Christ to keep your heads up, and it’s a notice to everyone who is not on this side saying, ‘Hey, why don’t you choose a better side?’ I hope that’s what people walk away with after hearing this record.”

In 2017, Tribbett released “The Bloody Win,” which featured live performances recorded the previous year at The Redemption Center in Greenville, South Carolina.

On July 8th, 2022, Tye publishes “All Things New” via Motown.

In 2009, he had an affair with a woman from his choir, Greater Anointing.

Tye said the indiscretion was with a young lady he and his wife had counseled.

Tribbett revealed his transgressions to the Associated Press, saying that he was surprised by his own actions after seeing his father do the same thing. Tye explained:

“I thought it was something that’ll never happen. I saw infidelity with my mom and dad who was a pastor, which made them split.”

He continued:

”I told myself that I would never do that. So when it happened in my marriage, it was like “Whoa.” God broke down my self-righteousness, my pride.”

He also said that the reason he cheated was:

“I ain’t start getting cute until I started getting money.”

After Shanté learned of his infidelity, she retaliated with an affair of her own with Da T.R.U.T.H., a Christian rapper with the real name Emmanuel Lee Lambert, Jr. – Tye’s then music collaborator and friend.
