A singer and songwriter who uses contemporary pop music frameworks to share his spiritual beliefs, Micah Tyler is a rising star in the contemporary Christian music community.
Micah Tyler Begnaud was born in Beaumont, Texas on April 19, 1983. He grew up in a loving and supportive Christian household, but despite his love of music, Tyler was something of a late bloomer, dividing his time between driving a truck and serving as a youth pastor in Buna, Texas into his late twenties. When Tyler did hear the call to use his talent in the service of the Lord, he was already married and a father of three kids, but once he committed himself to his faith and his music, he didn't look back. By 2013, Tyler had self-released his first album, The Story I Tell, and he was playing up to 200 dates a year at college campuses, youth events, and leadership conferences, primarily in the South and Southwest. A four-song release, The Kitchen Sink EP, followed in 2014. In May 2016, Tyler experienced an unexpected career breakthrough when a humorous video he made for a church leaders' conference, "You've Gotta Love Millennials," became a viral hit after it was posted online, racking up over 65 million views across several platforms. While the video exposed a wide audience to the funny side of Tyler's musical personality, his serious and spiritual side won an audience when his song "Never Been a Moment" made an impression on Christian radio. The song appeared on Tyler's EP Different, which was his first release for the independent Christian label Fair Trade Services
