Tye Tribbett recently spoke with Roland S. Martin about his upcoming “Hate Won’t Win” concert to benefit the families of the nine people who were shot to death in that tragic June 17th Charleston Church Massacre. The concert features some of the biggest names in Christian music such as gold-selling artist Israel Houghton, “Break Every Chain” singer Tasha Cobbs, R&B star Akon’s protégé Mali Music and Columbia, SC native Travis Greene.
The “Hate Won’t Win” concert takes place Thursday, July 23 @7 PM at The Medallion Conference Center in Columbia, SC and caps the first day of Tribbett’s second annual “The Chosen Music Mentorship” conference for church worship leaders.
Check out Tye’s conversation with Roland below:
“Gospel is the good news,” Tribbett says of his use of music as a healing tool to create racial harmony in the Carolinas. “By spreading the music we induce hope, and we train new worship leaders so they are equipped with the same intent to go fearlessly where some have lost hope and to boldly declare through this gospel that there is yet hope.”
