Award-winning gospel recording artist Marvin Sapp’s latest CD, a feel-good album titled Christmas Card, reminds listeners of the reason for the season and includes a “thank you” from the Sapp kids to all who have supported them since their mother’s passing. Sapp recently spoke with The Christian Post about his new LP, celebrating the holidays without his late wife, and how he manages being a single dad, pastor, and recording artist.
Sapp’s Christmas Card, opening with the track “Feels Real Good,” a bouncy, bass-heavy cut, and closing with the doo-wop track “Don’t Get It Twisted” that calls for keeping Christ in Christmas, also offers two traditional tracks, “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “Joseph’s Song.”
The family- and dance-friendly album is Sapp’s first-ever Christmas-themed LP, which is just one of a few recent firsts for the Michigan artist and minister.
Below is a transcript of CP’s interview with Sapp, in which he discussesChristmas Card, his church’s new charter school, how he handles his many responsibilities, and what pastors need to do to keep “transient” worshippers interested.
CP: Tell me a little about your new CD Christmas Card. I know it’s your first Christmas album and that you have some special guests featured on it as well.
Sapp: It’s a brand new CD, just came out in October. It’s different from what I’ve done as a solo artist, but it kind of mirrors what I did when I was in the group Commissioned.
