Marvin Sapp: Taking Digital World By Storm


Who says gospel music doesn't sell? Gospel sensation Marvin Sapp's single "New Would Have Made It" has officially sold 1,254,957 ringtones, according to Jive Records.

The chart-topping tune, which Sapp wrote after losing his biological father and spiritual father in a matter of months, has resonated in both the faith-based and secular communities. Coined the Top Song of 2008 by the Associated Press, the inspirational cut has helped Sapp win nine Stellar Awards and remained No. 1 at gospel radio for 47 weeks, the longest No. 1 radio single for all formats.

"This is so exciting! I remain humbled by the overwhelming response to this song and thank everyone who made "Never Would Have Made It" their ringtone," says  Sapp. "This is truly more than I could ask or think, and I am grateful."

Marvin Sapp is currently touring around the country and is scheduled to perform July 5 at the Essence Music Festival's tribute to Bishop T.D. Jakes.—KNB
