RCA Inspiration gospel recording artist Marvin Sapp’s new single “Home for Christmas” featuring R&B crooner Joe was serviced to radio on November 4. The first single from Sapp’s new holiday album “Christmas Card,” is reminiscent of classic contemporary holiday songs by Donny Hathaway or The Whispers.
“Christmas Card” which is available at retail and online stores, offers a unique blend of contemporary music and traditional holiday standards, such as a special reunion between Sapp and the gospel super-group Commissioned(Fred Hammond, Keith Staten, Mitchell Jones, Karl Reid, Michael Williams and Marcus Cole) for the tracks “What Child Is This?” and “Honor The King.” The album also includes the title track “Christmas Card“, “Feels Real Good“, “Holy“, “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen“, “Dance,” “Love At Christmas,” “MaKaila’s Shout Out,” “Thank You,” “Don’t Get It Twisted,” and “Joseph’s Song“.
A passionate orator and biblical teacher, who desires to be a living epistle glorifying our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ both in word and indeed. Many say his voice is instantly recognizable, characteristically raspy ringing with power and authority as he masterfully illustrates with excellence the Word of God. Not only is his delivery exemplary but, his knowledge of the historical text brings to life the message of hope and healing.
Sapp’s mega-selling “Never Would Have Made It” held down the #1 slot at Gospel radio for almost a full year; topped the Urban AC chart (the first to do so since Yolanda Adams’ “Open My Heart”); was a top selling ringtone and ringback, and propelled his album “Thirsty” to the top of the gospel charts for 27 weeks.
