RCA Inspiration gospel recording artist Marvin Sapp’s new holiday album “Christmas Card,” features the new single “Home for Christmas” with R&B crooner Joe. The track is reminiscent of classic contemporary holiday songs by Donny Hathaway or The Whispers. The new project is also full of Christmas standards that covey the “reason for the season”. Sapp reunites with gospel super-group Commissioned (Fred Hammond, Keith Staten, Mitchell Jones, Karl Reid, Michael Williams and Marcus Cole) on “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”. This release is two firsts for Sapp; his first Christmas album and the first time he has co-produced a project.
The Stellar Awards winning and Grammy nominated artist dominated both contemporary and gospel music charts with the 2007 smash hit single “Never Would Have Made It”, which held the #1 position at radio for 43 weeks, maintaining the top spot longer than any artist in Billboard’s history – including the Beatles and Elvis Presley. Sapp went on to release the chart-topping albums “Here I Am” and “I Win”.
