A Day With Tyrese Gibson

A Day With Tyrese Gibson

Tyrese Darnell Gibson (born December 30, 1978) also known simply as Tyrese, is an American R&B singer, rapper, actor, author, former fashion model and MTV VJ. After releasing several albums, he transitioned into films, with lead roles in several Hollywood releases. Gibson was born in Los Angeles, California, growing up in the Watts neighborhood. His mother, Priscilla Murray Gibson (née Durham), raised him & his 3 older siblings as a single parent after Gibson’s father, Lurk Gibson left. Watts, a tough neighborhood, but Tyrese hasnt forgotten his roots and this is precisly what gave me the opportunity to see this mans passion and dedication to helping the kids of Los Angeles.  Taking part in Operation HOPE’s Los Angeles Bus Tour highlighting the LA Riots 20 years ago and showing some of the most prominent members of the business and banking world the reconstruction and economic opportunities available was an enlightening experience.  Hearing John Hope Bryant, Tyrese Gibson and Quincy D Jones talk about their communities, memories and experiences in and around the underserved Los Angeles area gave me chills with every snap, every shot and every moment captured.  Thank you to everyone for the opportunity to capture this event.
