Gospel star Tye Tribbett was recently involved in an accident that required him to be rushed to the hospital for minor surgery. He was advised to rest from The Reunion Tour, but Tribbett pushed through and made an appearance anyway.
According to his wife, Shante Tribbett, the famous recording artist was packing for the West Coast run of The Reunion Tour when the accident occurred. He suffered a gash to his face that required stitches.
Shante Tribbett said at the time that her husband was doing well and was expected to make a full recovery. However, he had been advised by doctors to rest and avoid singing for the time being. Taking time to rest would affect his ability to perform on the West Coast run of The Reunion tour.
‘I’m Gonna Be All Right’
However, Tribbett decided to press forward with the tour.
“I’m just believing that I’m gonna feel better,” Tribbett said in a video published to social media. He made the remarks while on a flight after getting stitches.
“I believe I’m gonna be all right,” he added in the November 4 video.
Prayers up for Tye, he was rushed to the emergency room early this morning.

Sure enough, Tribbett still appeared on stage at The Reunion Tour according to a video he published two days later. Wearing a mask, he performed alongside Kirk Franklin and other gospel greats. But it is unclear if Tribbett sang his usual set.
As for the exact nature of Tribbett’s injury, it has not been disclosed. However, the gospel artist revealed that it was accidently self-inflicted.
Tribbett is one of the most popular and successful gospel singers of his generation. He has won numerous awards, including several Grammy Awards. He is also known for his electrifying live performances.
The Reunion Tour features Tribbett, Franklin, The Clark Sisters, David and Tamela Mann, and Israel Houghton. The Reunion Tour celebrates gospel music and its impact on the world.
