If this was not enough Tyrese returned to his musical roots to record and release through his own imprint his fifth studio album, Open Invitation, which not only debuted in the number one position but also spawn the hit single "Stay" which remained Number 1 for 11 consecutive weeks on billboards UAC chart.  The icing on the cake came with the Grammy Nomination for Best R&B Album.  Indeed Mr. Gibson has redefined the ideals of the energizer bunny.
