Family Reunion: Khirey Tyler and the Incredible Red Hands Band are Transforming Lives.
On this episode of Da Fixx, we are joined by our esteemed guest, Khirye Tyler of the Red Hands Band, who shared his inspiring journey and his involvement in Family Reunion Festival.
The Family Reunion Festival: A Celebration of Music and Culture
Each year the Family Reunion Festival, takes place at the iconic Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We were particularly thrilled about Khirye Tyler’s involvement as a producer, songwriter, and musician. Despite his success and the opportunities, he has in the music industry, Khirye remains humble, which is truly inspiring.
Hosting the festival at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is significant, and we asked Khirye to share his thoughts on this. He expressed his excitement about the festival, now in its second year, and emphasized their commitment to putting on a great show. The anticipation surrounding the Family Reunion Festival is palpable, and we can’t wait to see the positive impact it will have on the culture and music industry.
Khirye Tyler: A Journey from Foster Care to Music Stardom
Our conversation with Khirye Tyler took a personal turn as he shared his journey of growing up in the foster care system. His experiences have shaped his perspective on giving back, and he’s grateful for the opportunity to provide scholarships to individuals who have lived a similar life to his own. Partnering with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to spread the gospel’s message is a significant part of his mission.
Khirye’s relationship with God is deeply personal. Despite growing up in a household with 22 people and his grandparents being pastors, he had to find his own connection with Christ, which he discovered around the age of 12 or 13. His journey of deepening his relationship with God continues, and it’s a testament to his faith and resilience.
The Power of Transformation in the Christian Faith
We also dive into the importance of transformation in the Christian faith. Being a Christian is not just about going through the motions or claiming a title. It requires a genuine heart change and a willingness to let go of worldly desires. We emphasized the need for believers to renew their minds and prioritize their relationship with God.
We shared our personal struggles with wanting to chase worldly things while still trying to live a Christian life. The importance of sacrificing the old self and embracing true righteousness and holiness cannot be overstated. We also discussed the importance of judging others based on their fruit, which refers to the evidence of a transformed life through the fruit of the Holy Spirit.
Embracing Change and Seeking Transformation
Transformation is not easy and requires effort and commitment. Dice and I shared personal stories of our own struggles and the need to hold ourselves accountable. We encouraged listeners to seek a genuine transformation and not just settle for superficial changes.
We also highlighted the power of words and the importance of speaking positive affirmations over oneself. We recommended books that can help with the process of transformation, such as “Your Purpose is Your Calling” by Dr. Darius Daniels and “Winning the War in Your Mind” by Craig Sager. Joyce Meyer’s book “Battlefield of the Mind” was also mentioned as a valuable resource for taking control of one’s thoughts and transforming one’s mindset.
Personal Transformation and the Power of Music
DJ Focus shared a personal story about my weight loss journey and how it has reignited my desire to play basketball again. Dice praised his transformation and emphasized the importance of growth in all aspects of life.
We then shifted the conversation to Khirye Tyler, a talented musician and the music director for Beyoncé’s Renaissance Tour. We commended Khirye for prioritizing his gospel hip-hop band, Red Hands, and showcasing other artists in the gospel music space. His humility and dedication are truly admirable.
We also reminisced about our experience at the unplugged Stellar week in Vegas, where we witnessed incredible performances and unity among artists. We encouraged listeners to attend the Family Reunion Festival and support Khirye Tyler and Red Hands. Tap in with the Red Hands Band and Khirye Tyler on their website, redhandsband.com.
