Welcome back to Beyond The Rhythm our cherished readers and music freaks. This week, we are taking a look at an amazing artist who has grown tremendously in the gospel music circles over the years.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I gladly present to you the Composer, Arranger, Beat Maker, Vocalists, Producer and the ”whoooaaww” man Tyrone Tribbett popularly known as Tye Tribbett.
The now solo artiste without his group G.A. (Greater Anointing) had this album (12 songs) recorded live in the Angelus Temple (Live Band Recording). The album which was released on August 6th, 2013 won him two Grammy awards the following year.
This album combines the skill of vocals and dexterity of instrumentation with the unadulterated word of God. The album defines modern gospel with hip-hop, R&B and pop woven together. I don’t know about you but for me, this album was made for me. To you facing challenges in your life, the word for you today is to take some time and listen to this album, your life won’t remain the same. Lets take a look at track number 5 titled Greater Than.
“Our God does the impossible Our God He performs miracles Our God can bring light out of darkness And our God He can breath life into death.” The first verse from the song draws inspiration from the Holy Book where our God is depicted as the God of Possibilities bringing hope out of hopeless situation and defying human logic! The lyrics of this song is relatable and powerful.
This Song is a faith Booster! Really, if God is for us then there is absolutely nothing or no one to stand or win against us.
Allow me share a little Testimony with you.
It got to a point where I needed to extend my national service period. And as part of the process I had to send a copy of the filled forms through my rep so it could get to the regional office. But the deadline for the process however, wasn’t well communicated so i missed the chance to give the form to my rep because i met her absence in her office. Since it was a Friday i decided to take the form home so i would rather submit on Monday.
Just about the same moment, i was called and told that, that very day was actually the last day for submission. The call came through at 4:55pm, meanwhile the office I’m to submit the forms to should close by 5pm. This was an impossible situation unless God intervenes.
i was full of thoughts but not without a glimmer of hope inside of me, so i held onto it(that hope). Knowing that my God does the impossible and was still in the miracle working business.
I so much needed this extension at least to gather some money for myself because I was in a difficult phase of life. Miraculously I got there and they were just on the verge of closing, so I approached one lady and explained my situation. I didn’t even end my first statement before she took the forms and did what was necessary. She ensured the forms were signed by the NSS director that very minute and finalized everything. I didn’t know the lady from anywhere but when God spoke, i had what i needed in a matter of seconds.
So this is to you who is going through any situation in life just know that God is greater than anything that has a name, and that includes your situation, Period!
