Gospel artist Tye Tribbett stopped by the Yahoo! offices when he was in Los Angeles to tape his forthcoming Greater Than CD/DVD. In part-one of the three-part interview, Tye explains his two-year decision to cut his dreadlocks, why he doesn't regret going public about his infidelity, and what prompted the name of his upcoming set.

On being open about his transgressions, he said:

I think it was important for me to present myself as a gospel artist, as Christian, as a representer of God … as flawed because I think the facade is they're perfect or not perfect -- I don't think anyone is perfect, of course -- but I think we're all striving and I don't think us leaders present the strive.
