  1. And for those who like other types of Christian music, this would be Michael Tait’s mother as well. He is the lead singer for The Newsboys.

    • I thought about posting that, but decided against it – though not for the reasons you might guess. I decided against it because, while I assumed Lynda and Michael shared the same father and mother (and not just one parent), I didn’t know for 100% sure.

  2. Wikipedia suggests that they are full brother and sister.

    • Oh, I figured they probably were. I’ve just assumed things and been wrong a time or two before, and that has me playing it safe when I don’t know for sure.

      • Hahahaha. I’m the same way Daniel. Even found myself wondering if I should post what I did just because I’ve seen things on Wikipedia that were wrong.

      • OK. 🙂

  3. Dear Tait family- please accept our condolences in the homegoing of your Mother

  4. SO SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT LYNDA MOM. PRAYERS FOR HER N HER FAMILY .THANKS FOR SHARING THIS BIT OF NEWS.
