Bishop Marvin Sapp is an American Gospel music singer-songwriter who began his career with the group Commissioned during the 1990’s before beginning a record-breaking solo career. His albums Thirsty & Here I Am would propel Sapp to become the all-time highest charting gospel artist in Billboard’s history of tracking album sales by 2010.
Marvin Sapp returns with his 11th solo album, “Close.” Now at the age of 50, Marvin finds himself at a crossroads in life with a fresh perspective. As a widowed father of three & officially an “empty-nester,” Marvin pens each song as a love letter to his Creator. “I must be close, to my destiny, extremely close to my victory” he sings, both inquisitively and yet still with the full forced faith only Bishop Sapp can deliver. Featuring collaborations with Kirk Franklin & Sapp’s long-time collaborator Aaron Lindsey (Thirsty/Here I Am), Close will be available everywhere September 29th, 2017.
