So Tye Tribbett wants everyone to believe he disbanded his group GA because it was time for a change. Hum, I think that’s a bunch of crap! For those of you wondering why I’m going so hard on him let me get you up to speed with this dude.
Tye Tribbett is a phenomenal gospel artist who exploded on the scene with his group Greater Anointing (GA) back in 2004 with his hit album Life. Notable songs off the album include No Way and Everything. Following the success of his debut album, Tye Tribbett dropped 3 more critically acclaimed albums with his group GA, including the 2008 release of Stand Out which has one of my favorite songs ever, Bless the Lord (Son of Man). There’s no question Tye Tribbett and GA were on their way to gospel icons until…
Early 2009 when it was discovered Tye was carrying on and affair with one of the members of the group. I’m not gonna go into full details, but you can check out the full story over at DaGospelTruth.
Anyway things went downhill from there for GA. Fast-forward to today, Tye Tribbett has a new album out called Fresh and GA… well they’re somewhere kicking rocks.
Recently Tye was somewhere explaining why he disbanded the group and he gave a lame answer that you can check out here.
I am not writing this article to bash Tye. I believe in forgiveness and if he made everything right with God and his wife then who are we to still hold him to the past. My problem is people using church rhetoric to hide their indiscretions. Saying God was bringing me into a new season, when in actuality you were caught up cheating with a member in the group is crap to me. Own up to your faults and move on or stop talking about it. Put don’t pass off garbage to God’s people. We’re a lot smarter than that.
Question of the century: If Tye Tribbett wasn’t caught cheating would he still be singing with GA?
