Here’s what you need to know about Dr.Marvin L. Sapp.

Who is Dr. Marvin L. Sapp?

ms1Dr. Marvin L. Sapp is a passionate orator and biblical teacher, who desires to be a living epistle glorifying our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ both in word and in deed who serves as the senior pastor of Lighthouse Full Life Center Church as well as Bishop over Global United Fellowship Central Providence to more than 50 churches. Many say his voice is instantly recognizable with a characteristically raspy ringing with power and authority as he masterfully illustrates with excellence the Word of God. Not only is his delivery exemplary, but his knowledge of the historical text brings to life the message of hope and healing.

“Not a singer that happens to preach, but a Preacher called by God who is gifted to sing”

ms3Singing since age four he has shared the stage with many gospel notables and his gift is celebrated across musical genres. He began singing with the gospel group Commissioned in 1990. In 1996, God led him to go solo. He released his first CD “Marvin Sapp”, then Grace and Mercy”, then his CDs were as follows: “Nothing Else Matters”, “I Believe”, “Diary Of A Psalmist”, “Be Exalted”, “Thirsty”, “Here I Am”, “I Win” and in 2013 he released his Christmas Card CD that featured his three children. The backdrop for the CD “I Win” came from him mitigating the pain of the loss of his wife through conversations with God. The title “Here I Am” for gospel star Marvin Sapp is more than a little ironic when one considers that, “Never Would Have Made It” from his 2007 release “Thirsty” has been among the most ubiquitous gospel songs. According to Billboard, Marvin Sapp single “Best In Me” matched the 2008 peak of his seminal “Never Would Have Made It.” The mega- selling “Never Would Have Made It” held the #1 slot at Gospel radio for almost a full year; topped the Urban AC chart (the first to do so since Yolanda Adams’ “Open My Heart”) and has the top selling ringtone and ring back (2 million sales), and propelled “Thirsty” to the top of the gospel charts for 27 weeks.

He has enjoyed a decorated music career receiving 10 Grammy nominations, 22 Stellar Awards, 2 Soul Train Music Awards, 2 BET Awards, 2 Dove Awards, and 8 BMI songwriter’s awards for sales along with many other accolades and honors from national, regional, and local institutions.

“Not Complacent, yet pressing towards the mark”

Pastor Marvin has been honored and recognized for his professional and philanthropic efforts in his home city, Grand Rapids, Michigan. He received the city’s highest African American honor, a Giants Award, as well as the Frederick Douglas Award from the National Association of Negro and Professional Women’s Club.

Sapp. Pastor Marvin is also the President/Founder of Grand Rapids Ellington Academy of Arts and Technology (GREAAT).

National Recording Artist and Pastor Norman Hutchins New Single “He Can Do It” is NOW available to enjoy.

Who is Recording Artist Norman Hutchins?

nh1While many artists are born to share their talent with the world, it would stand to reason only a fraction of them realizes why they are gifted. Norman Hutchins is among that small proportion fortunate enough to know how to handle the responsibility of delivering music, more specifically, the word of God through song.

Hutchins in no uncertain terms, is more than an award winning gospel artist. A masterful writer and producer, he’s scored some of traditional gospel’s more noted albums over the years, including Spontaneous Praise: Volume One, Battlefield, God’s Gotta Blessing (With My Name On It!) and Jesus I Love You, earning nominations from the Stellar, Grammy and Dove Award academy’s in the process. Not to mention, he is a community leader, Pastor and successful entrepreneur. Thirty years after receiving his Doctorate in Church Administration, Norman continues to share his vision and anointing as he meets the countless demands of preaching, teaching and singing the Gospel of Jesus Christ worldwide.

While serving as Executive Minister of Music for the presiding Bishop of the Churches of God in Christ as well as serving as the Director of Social Services at the West Angeles Church of God in Christ in Los Angeles, Norman learned some very valuable lessons that would prove to be invaluable down the road. Having survived a bout with blindness and other notable setbacks in recent memory, Hutchins faith is imaginably stronger than ever on “If You Didn‘t Know, Now You Know,” his seventh solo album. The process therein, was unsurprisingly born from circumstance, but not all his own.

nh2Overall, the theme of “trusting God” rings true, as the results of “If You Didn‘t Know, Now You Know,” were derived from a two to three month period where Hutchins led praise and worship in the church.

“While we were singing God dropped these lyrics in the atmosphere and I would look at the keyboard player and tell him to follow me.” Encouraged by where the process would take him, Hutchins continued the course and ultimately manufactured what will easily be deemed one of his most brilliant works to date.

If Hutchins ever sounds like he’s preaching, it’s probably because he is…especially through song. Called to the ministry at the tender age of eight an ordained minister by the time he was twelve, Norman Hutchins was born to preach. Not the other way around. “My music is my gift, but preaching is my calling,” Hutchins says. “I’ve been called to preach, so music has become sort of a back door approach to present the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
