PRESS RELEASE — Stand Out, the eagerly anticipated new full-length live album from the contemporary gospel singer/songwriter/performer Tye Tribbett and his gospel choir and musical ensemble, G.A. (Greater Anointing), have just entered the Billboard Top Gospel Albums chart at #1. Released on Tuesday, May 6, Stand Out is Tribbett’s second straight #1 Gospel debut, following the precedent established by Victory Live!, the gospel artist’s last album, which entered the Top Gospel Albums chart at #1 after its release in May 2006.

Already a crossover success, Stand Out has just debuted at #16 on the Billboard Top 200, readily surpassing Victory Live!’s peak (#64) on that chart. Driven by the #1 Gospel Radio single, “Victory,” Victory Live! earned Tribbett two Stellar Awards and three Grammy nominations — Best Gospel Performance (“Victory”); Best Gospel Song (“Victory”); and Best Contemporary R&B Gospel Album.

Recorded live at Rock Church International in Virginia Beach on August 17, 2007, Stand Out premieres a group of new musical testimonies to the Power of the Word and the Glory of the Holy Spirit, each written or co-written by Tye Tribbett: “Stand Out,” “Hold On,” “Look Up,” “I Need You,” “Prodigal Son,” “All Hail The King,” “Hallelujah,” “Let Us Worship,” “So Amazing,” “He Has Made Me Glad,” “I Made It Through,” “Chasing After You,” and “Well Done.” As an added blessing for Tribbett fans, Stand Out includes the hidden bonus track, the single “Good In The Hood.”

Tye Tribbett, a co-host, along with Kirk Franklin and Mary Mary, at the 22nd Annual Stellar Awards ceremony, and G.A. have performed with a variety of pop and gospel superstars ranging from Justin Timberlake and Faith Hill to Mary J. Blige, Donnie McClurkin, Kim Burrell and Israel Houghton.

Tye Tribbett sponsored his second annual youth conference earlier this year in the Poconos, with more than 1,000 attending. He will be performing at this year’s Essence Festival in New Orleans.
