    Gospel’s Tye Tribbett Celebrates 19 Years of Marriage and Struggles After Affairs

    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.

    On Friday’s The Real, the show’s co-host is singing “Little Drummer Boy,” accompanied on piano by her GRAMMY® Award-winning husband.

    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.

    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.

    After Shirley Caesar Praised the #UNamedIt Remix, She’s Suing DJ Suede for Money!
    Wow, now Miss Shirley said she liked it and that young children know her songs because of the rage of #UNameIt video. We are certainly sure that she made money from her albums, and new members to her church and astronomical views on her channels and social media pages.
    Anyway, we can see how she may think she’s owned something from this since she states the video contained images to alcohol and that could tarnish her reputation or that she condones this behavior. She did state that she did not understand why many people were twerking to the song and that she did not appreciate that. Well, let’s see how it goes. What do you think about the lawsuit? Do you think she should sue or let it go?
    Grammy-winning gospel singer Shirley Caesar, whose sermon-song “Hold My Mule” went viral a few years ago, is suing a Georgia rapper over a remix of her song.
    The lawsuit, filed this week in Gwinnett County, accuses Keenan Webb – known as DJ Suede – of releasing an unauthorized version. The clerk’s office says the court file does not yet list an attorney for Webb.
    Caesar’s attorney, James Walker, said the only official version authorized by her has been performed by Snoop Dogg.
    Walker said Suede’s video of the song includes references to alcohol, which is objectionable to the gospel singer.
    Caesar said she originally recorded the song in 1988. Caesar’s singing the words “you name it” sparked the #UNameItChallenge online, which features people doing dances to the song.

    Gospel Singer and Bishop Rance Allen and Group Release 25th Album “Live in San Francisco”

    The legendary trio of blood brothers, The Rance Allen Group, released its 25th album “Live From San Francisco” (Tyscot Records) and a separate DVD of it on October 28th. The group pioneered the fusion of R&B-styled rhythms with spiritual and message music themes in the 1970s. It’s a winning style that has won them fans as varied as American Idol’s Randy Jackson, Kirk Franklin, `80s rockers Huey Lewis & The News and Fred Hammond. They continue to labor in this unique musical vineyard on the new eleven-song set that was recorded live at the Bay area’s Richmond Memorial Auditorium.
