Ask Tye Tribbett, as he and his energetic aggregation known as Greater Anointing, held the album release party with nearly 5,000 of their closest friends. While parts of the country focused on Democratic primaries, the eyes of the gospel music world shifted to Philadelphia's Sharon Baptist Church on May 6, 2008 for the official Stand Out (read album review) release party and concert.
Gospel artists including Da T.R.U.T.H., John Cook, Tia Pittman, James Hall, and Dr. Kevin Bond were in attendance to share in the evening's festivities. The evening began with a unique presentation from Jeff Bradshaw and Brass 7. This collection of musicians consisted of five trombones, a tuba, and a cornet, accompanied by drums, organ, and electric guitar. Reminiscent of a funky marching band, Bradshaw and Brass 7 blessed the masses with special twists to classics such as "Stomp" and "Speak To My Heart".
Up next was TWyse who blew the crowd away with his incredible hip-hop stylings. Flanked by a live band, which included a 3-piece horn section and dual percussionists, TWyse made a lasting impact with the powerful pieces "Changed" and "Heaven".
Following TWyse was Darnell Miller and The Praise Team. Miller is no stranger to the big stage, as he serves as lead guitarist for SoundCheck, the famed "He Lives" along with the worship ballad "Overflow".
After this, Tribbett and G.A. took the stage with an incredibly futuristic entrance, reminiscent of the energetic vibe found in Kanye West's 2008 Grammy entrance. This led to an insane set which featured hits such as "No Way", "I Want It All Back", "No Other Choice", and "Everything". Jon Owens joined the fray to lead "Bless The Lord (Son of Man)", the evening's first song from the Stand Out album.
In traditional Tribbett fashion, the artist took time to share God's Word with the masses, encouraging the youth to stand for righteous living and stand out against the enemy's tricks that are designed to draw them away from God's call.
Kim Burrell joined Tribbett on the chorally scintillating "He Has Made Me Glad". Staying in the Sunday Morning church vibe, GA went into "I Made It Through", which led into an incredible praise party.
SoundCheck music director Thaddaeus Tribbett and Emory Diggs joined Tribbett on the album's current radio hit "Hold On". The praise party was in high gear and continued with "Victory", "Stand Out", and "So Amazing". The evening ended with Tribbett's personal prayer, "Well Done".
