Elev8 Media & Entertainment

With the release of his 15th studio album, Substance, on Friday, gospel great Marvin Sapp is showing no sign of slowing down. 

The 50-minute project boasts 11 message-oriented tracks that, as Apple Music puts it, are “rooted in soulful pop-gospel R&B.”

The Texas pastor and co-founder of Lighthouse Full Life Center Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan, told Rolling Out of the new album, “Substance is what I believe that we need to stand on.”

“I wanted to make sure that this particular record was something that people could stand on, something that they can listen to, and apply the principles of the song to their lives so that the rest of [their] days can be the best of their days,” he said. 

Sapp says the lead single, “All in Your Hands,” which released in March, was born out of the pandemic.

“When we looked at where we were, all of us said the only way we’re going to be able to get through any of this is if we put it in God’s hands, because we’re supposed to cast our cares upon him,” he told Rolling Out

Also on the album is a special 25th anniversary remix version of his 1997 hit, “Grace and Mercy.”
