Tedde Gibson is of the few organists comfortable playing such a wide range of musical styles on a theater organ. Gibson began playing piano at age four. In the following decades, he studied voice, pipe organ, and theater organ with several world-renowned organists and performed extensively on premier theater and classical organs. He has collaborated with several gospel and jazz artists including Byron Cage, Melba Moore, Earnest Pugh, Twinkie Clark, Jennifer Holiday, and Dorinda Clark-Sheard.
