Christmas with the Gettys
Keith and Kristyn Getty are passionate about hymns.
Their hymns, including “In Christ Alone” and “Christ Our Hope in Life and Death,” are sung throughout the world, with 85 of their titles listed by CCLI in its US and UK top 2000 lists. Their original publishers, Integrity Music, have estimated that more than 100 million people around the globe sing their hymns every year.
The couple also loves sharing hymns in diverse settings, from singalongs in their home and at local churches to annual events at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, and the Grand Ole Opry House. They have also been featured in television specials on PBS, CBS, TBN, BBC, and have sung for presidents, prime ministers, and the UK National Prayer Breakfast at Houses of Parliament. They look forward to resuming a season of SING! arena events across the world which began in their hometowns of Belfast and Nashville.
Keith and Kristyn are award-winning recording artists, with their upcoming album “Christ Our Hope in Life and Death” tracing their journey back to Ireland last year and the roots of their hymn writing. They are also advocates for the fun and joy of singing in the family, with the recently released “Hymns from Home” album (drawing from their daughters’ favorite songs during the season of lockdown) as the latest installment in their popular Getty Kids Hymnal series. Kristyn recently recorded a new audio version of the ESV Bible, to be released soon from our friends at Crossway.
Keith and Kristyn continue to serve as founding leaders of the Getty Music organization, with their newest project the Sing Hymnal to be released in 2024. They recently established the Getty Music Foundation, an initiative that seeks to foster Christ-centered singing in under-resourced parts of the world.
Keith was recently awarded Officer of the Order of the British Empire by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II-the first contemporary Christian musician to receive this honor. Together with their four daughters, Keith and Kristyn live between Northern Ireland and Nashville.
