Tye Tribbett is just one man, but at the Tom Joyner Family Reunion, he’s going to sound like an army, along with his talented band. The Camden, N.J. -raised gospel singer is leading the“Gospel Explosion” at the annual event in Orlando, Florida held this year from August 30 – September 4 at the Gaylord Resort.
Tribbett, who has released four recordings since 2004, will be recording his fifth CD/DVD project called “Greater Than” next month in two different locations. Tribbett says this project was inspired directly by Scripture. "It's important that we, the body of Christ, point to something and someone greater than ourselves," says Tribbert. "This CD is about getting the focus back to God and acknowledging that He is greater than anything or anyone. The Bible says, 'Greater is he that is in us than he that is in the world.' When I read that verse recently, the "er" in greater jumped out at me. It implies that he that is in the world is great. If we're honest, the pull of the world is great. But truth is, GOD is GREATER!!"
Fans who want to participate in the recording of “Greater Than” can do so in person. In Florida, Tribbett will be recording live at the Faith Center Ministries in Sunrise, Florida on August 17 from 7 p.m. On the West Coast, Tribbett will record Part 2 at the Angelus Temple in L.A. on August 31st at 7 p.m.
General admission is $10 for both shows except for reserved seating which is $20. Fans who want to meet Tribbett can buy the “Greater Than” package which includes a meet and greet, a private rehearsal and reserved seating and dinner with Tribbett and his band. Groups of 10 or more can purchase at a special rate. For tickets and more info go to www.greaterthannation.com.
