Joyful Noise host, Tye Tribbett co-hosted the 47th Annual Dove Awards with Christian artist, For King & Country. The two Christian music acts represent different races, nationalities and genres in Christian music. Tye Tribbett who is a fan of the group, told the CP before the awards show started that he was interested in showing unity in the body of Christ with the band, during a time when there is so much racial division.
On co-hosting the Dove Awards with For King & Country:
“If I was going to be able to just meet them that would be awesome, but to co-host with them is overwhelming and God sent. I’m most anticipating partnering with them and coming together to show unity among the Kingdom,” Tribbett said. “With all of the crazy things going on today, I’m more interested in aggressively showing unity in Christ.”
On showing love and unity:
“The Doves have done an amazing job from year to year of showcasing a universal expression of praise and worship, and that’s one thing I really appreciate about the awards.
“I think it’s very necessary, especially during these days and times where I don’t know what’s up with this whole segregation and prejudice thing kind of trying to rear it’s ugly head back up,” Tribbett told CP before the taping of the Dove Awards on Tuesday. “When it comes to the Kingdom of God, we have to show love and unity. This is going to be an incredible time to showcase that.”
