While the Gospel music genre is churning out exciting new artists every year, there are some voices that remain timeless and relevant within an industry that is constantly reinventing itself. One of those artists is Marvin Sapp, who this week heads to Las Vegas for the Billboard Music Awards. He is nominated in two categories: Top Gospel Artist and Top Gospel Album (You Shall Live).

“It is always an honor to be nominated among your peers, and I am grateful for the continued support of the music industry and Gospel music fans,” says Sapp who was Billboard’s Top Male Gospel Artist of 2015.

You Shall Live is Sapp’s 10th album, and his fourth consecutive #1 debut. You Shall Live was inspired by the last words Sapp heard from his late wife, MaLinda: “Honey if you want me to be happy in my transition, promise me after I transition that you will live.”
