Tye Tribbett, Tasha Cobbs, Mandisa took home Grammys during the 56th Annual Grammy Awards Pre-Telecast Ceremony that took place yesterday, Sunday, Jan. 26, at the Nokia Theatre. The ceremony was also streamed live internationally at GRAMMY.com/live and CBS.com.
Gospel Artiste Tye Tribbett got something special for his birthday Sunday: two Grammy awards.
Tribbett won best gospel album and best gospel song, letting out a long and loud “Woooooooo” after each win.
Tribbett turned 38, but said “I’m 22 on stage.”
As he listed off his ‘thank yous’, he thanked his producer, then realized he’d made a mistake since he served as his own: “It just sounds like something you’re supposed to say.”
He also served as a presenter during the ceremony.
Tasha Cobbs, who lost her father last week received her Grammy for “Break Every Chain” and gave a heartfelt acceptance speech. Mandisa’s infectious, uplifting album and song “Overcomer” grabbed two Grammys as well.
