Keith and Kristyn Getty
For the past decade, singers/songwriters, Keith and Kristyn Getty, have pioneered a new movement in hymn writing, teaching Christian doctrine and crossing genres by connecting the world of traditional and classical composition with globally-accessible melodies. Together with their song collaborators, they’ve written over 60 of the most popular 2,000 hymns sung in the U.S. and U.K., according to Christian Copyright Licensing International (CCLI). Their popular song, “In Christ Alone” has been ranked #1 in the U.K. for 9 years and in the top 10 in the U.S. Together with their band touring the globe, they’ve led a worldwide revival of congregational hymn singing, and in 2016 launched the successful, Global Hymn Sing, where more than 1 million congregants in 5,400-plus churches in over 100 countries worldwide joined together in song. They’ve also recently published their lastest book, Sing! How Worship Transforms Your Life, Family, and Church. The couple, who is originally from Belfast, Ireland, currently lives in Nashville with their four daughters.
