“I Want ‘You Shall Live’ to Reach People Who Are Hurting” Marvin Sapp Speaks on New Album

Marvin Sapp
Marvin Sapp is gearing up to release his 10th solo album - You Shall Live on June 2 and recently opened up about his process recording it. Sapp, 48, took to his VEVO channel to preview his upcoming album and spoke about his mission in releasing the project.
"I have literally been in this business for 25 years. Out of 25 years, this being my 10th solo record, I think my mission was to try to make music that was still current but yet still ministered," Sapp said in his VEVO video. "I've always been the type of artist who has focused on not just musical style but on the content of my lyrics."
While he went on to preview new material and an edgier sound, he also explained the meaning behind the title of "You Shall Live" .

"I think the main reason why I decided to title this CD You Shall Live is because I'm not a victim. I look at my life over the last five years and I know people who have given up for less than what I had to go through," Sapp said. "So You Shall Live is just a declaration. It just says no matter how messed up you might think your life might be, every day above ground is a good day."

Sapp said he believes You Shall Live should minister to people who are dealing with a multitude of different emotions.

"This record in general is a record that should tap into every aspect of an individual's emotions," Sapp explained. "But ultimately, each and every song has a place in the puzzle to minister to each and every area in an individual's heart, mind and spirit." 

Sapp said his aim is to reach people who are hurting."I was in a very transparent space when I recorded this album. I wanted to deliver something that was going to encourage those who are in the valleys of their lives, to let them know, I get it," Sapp continued. 

"I know what it feels like to have your heart ripped out of your chest. But I also needed them to know that no matter the heartbreak, God's got us and even the most painful experience can be overcome".

''It’s a new era, a new turn in the tides of journey as a nation steeped deep in the ashes of partisanship, corruption, bad governance and a host of other vices.

We mark an end to the reign of terror over Nigeria, we hear the echo of a sound from Judah, the roar of the Lion, declaring the rise of a new sun upon every heart, it’s the day of His power.'' ~ Pst. Chingtok Ishaku & Nathaniel Bassey
