On the night he decided to end his life, a young teenager depressed and alone heard a soft voice ask him "will you live for me?" He visualized himself lying dead on the kitchen floor and the pain his family would feel when they found him. He visualized a man he learned about as a child. A man who died on a cross and rose again just so he could live. This caused him to decide to not forfeit his future. He replied to the voice, "yes, I will live for you." Now, with a passion to help people around the world with a message of hope, Tyrone 'TDG' Gordon has become a true renaissance man as a recording artist, singer, rapper, producer, beat-boxer, choir director, actor, and graphic artist.
Starting from his home town Austin, Texas, TDG has performed in various cities throughout the U.S. and Canada. His song "The Choice Is Yours (with Smiley-D)" was #1 on the UnTapped Show Top 5 countdown on the radio for three months straight. In Spring of 2012 he performed at the Austin Urban Music Festival, sharing the stage with Boyz II Men, Babyface, and After7. As an actor, TDG has been featured in various television shows and films such as the Emmy Nominated "Friday Night Lights" series (2006-2010) on NBC, "The Lying Game" (2011-2012) on ABC Family, "Man of The House" (2005) and "Two For Texas" (1998).

TDG began singing in church at the age of two and began songwriting at the age of nine. With various musical influences and a lyrical focus based on Biblical principals, TDG wrote, produced, and published his first album, 'WHOL-E', in 2004. He followed with his second album 'FOCUS' in 2008, which included the single 'The Best Book (BIBLE),' a song has taught people around the world how to recite the books of the Bible. TDG is also a member of Psalm Fresh, an eclectic acoustic band that fuses classical strings with beat-box and positive rap. From 2009 to 2011, TDG signed with Tate Music Group and has released his current album 'Live It To The Fullest.'

With a heart for people who suffer from depression and suicide, TDG strives to be a positive role model and an encouraging voice in the community and entertainment industry. 'Live It To The Fullest,' introduces a positive perspective in a new genre, he calls WHOL-E Music, that mixes rap, rock, pop, beat-box and soul with the Gospel of Christ to mend broken hearts and become whole for eternity. TDG explains, "Popular music and culture is missing a positive component that actually helps people when they listen to it. In all that I do, I strive to help change lives for the better. The world is missing the love of Christ. Each song can help people see His love and grow closer to Him."

Now as an independent artist, TDG has released a new Christian Rock single with California producer, K Nikolas, titled 'Last Known Address' on iTunes. Also released on iTunes is the soulful acoustic version of 'The Best Book (BIBLE)' song with SaulPaul. TDG has also released a Christian Rap single with Oklahoma rapper, Smiley-D, titled 'The Choice Is Yours' available on Amazon.

TDG = True Disicple of God which is based on the scripture
Matthew 22:37-39 "Jesus answered him, 'Love the Lord your God
with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This
is the greatest and most important commandment. The second
is like it: 'Love your neighbor as you love yourself.'"
You can be a TDG too, simply love God and love people.
The enemy came to kill, steal and destroy, but Christ came so we may have abundant life. #LiveItToTheFullest
