Overview

Grand Rapids, MI, native Marvin Sapp, a former member of the gospel group the Commissioned, insists he is a preacher who sings rather than a singer who preaches, but regardless of his sense of self-identity in such matters, it is his strong and soulful vocals that make his albums work far more than the praise & worship themes and lyrics he favors. What he says, obviously, comes into play for his many fans on the contemporary gospel scene, but he's not conveying concepts that are exactly startling revelations in this field. No, it's that voice that carries the day: a strong, husky, impassioned, and -- above all else -- undeniably soulful vehicle that blasts through these busy arrangements like an alto sax. The songs themselves are fairly interchangeable, with a backup choir and full trap kit mixed high in most of them, giving each the feel of tremendous energy. Toss in Sapp's assertive vocals, and you've got some rockin' preaching going on, but in the end, it's really how Sapp says things more than what he says that is left in one's memory. He may be a preacher who sings, but it's the singing that truly resonates. Put another way, if you're a plumber who sings on the job, you're a singing plumber. That all changes, however, when you go out and record albums in which your singing is the central calling card. Then you're a singer, even if what you sing about is clogs and drains.

I wanted to listen to something to cheer me up because I lost a freind today and he loved Gospel music. He was a Reverend. The music is beautiful. I will go out and buy it for him. I miss him so much. Thank you for Martin Sapp!!

Everyone needs to listen to "Never Would Have Made It Without You!" every single day. I made a ringtone for my phone, it is my alarm, my reminder and the CD stays in my player at all times. This is the only song I need in my life! It has some amazing supernatural power that I do not understand. The other songs are amazing, as well. Amazing musicians (love the pianist!!!) ,singers, arrangments..... IT IS ESSENTIAL!!!!!!! Thank you Mr. Sapp. GOD BLESS YOU! Your momma did good. Kathy in Ft. Lauderdale
