Marvin Sapp 5th Consecutive #1 Album
Multi-award-winning Gospel music icon Marvin Sapp brings home 5th consecutive #1 debut on Billboard Gospel Album chart.
“It is a humbling experience when an album reaches #1. This music, these songs, are birthed out of my life and testimony. They are my lifeline to God. That God would use me to help provide a lifeline to so many others is remarkable. I am grateful to everyone who worked on this album, and to everyone who has purchased it. I hope it blesses you the way it continues to bless me.” - Marvin Sapp
“We are thrilled to celebrate Marvin Sapp on this latest album reaching #1. Marvin Sapp continues to be a guiding force sharing a timeless message that reaches across generations, with a vital voice and ministry that’s unparalleled. We are thankful to everyone who’ve bought the album and pray it continues to encourage you.” - Phil Thornton (Verity SVP & General Manager)
Sapp's 11th studio album, CLOSE, reunites him with longtime collaborator Aaron Lindsey while also featuring first-time production collaborations with Rodney Jerkins for “You and Me Together” feat. Erica Campbell and Izze Williams, Kirk Franklin on “Kind God” and R. Kelly for “Listen.”
One mentionable highlight of CLOSER is testimonial track, “Carried Me” on which Sapp sings, “My life was in shambles…and He held me.” Being one of Sapp’s favorite tracks on the album, Sapp says,
“When we look back on life’s challenges, the only reason we made it to where we are is because He carried us.”
“In this season, people need to understand that even though we go through situations, it’s not because of God forsaking us, He uses life challenges to ensure we are prepared for what He is about to walk us into. I want to encourage people. You’re closer now than ever before.”
In addition to his new music, Bishop Marvin Sapp’s ministry continues at home in Michigan, where he leads Lighthouse Full Life Center Church in Grand Rapids and Muskegon. He is also Metropolitan Bishop within the Global United Fellowship where he oversees more than 100 churches in 19 states.
