After dual affairs nearly ended the high-profile Christian couple’s union, Tye Tribbett and his wife Shante’ Tribbett, whom he affectionately calls “My Taylah,” are triumphantly celebrating 19 years of marriage.
In a new Instagram post, amid the celebration, the GRAMMY® Award-winning gospel singer gets honest about the struggles of making a marriage work.
“Love is not just the butterflies in the belly, or skipping through the fields hand in hand, or blushing on the other line saying ‘no you hang up first’ nor is it the story book fantasy of ecstasy or a frenzy of poetic inspiration,” wrote the BET’s Joyful Noise host, 40.

Bailon, 32, and Houghton, 45, wed in Paris last month and have been sharing the joys of their new life together on the syndicated talk show co-hosted by Jeannie Mai, Tamera Mowry-Housley and Loni Love.
It wasn’t the greatest performance, noting that they both are in the singing profession. But if you are interested in seeing the together as husband and wife (for now), here they go.
We’re Going to Miss Mighty Clouds of Joy Lead Singer Willie Joe Ligon
This man had an impact on me. Willie Joe Ligon sung a song once with the Mighty Clouds of Joy that stated the doctor said he had throat issues and would never sing again because he sung so hard. But it was always God he stated that kept him and at that time it had been 20 more years after that diagnosis. We love Willie Joe Ligon, a man of God, and his will to continue to stay on the wall for Jesus even during his own discomfort and medical issues. May God have him rest in peace, good and faithful soldier.
