Celebrated gospel music icon and award-winning recording artiste Marvin Sapp is set to work on a new live project slated later for in February this year at his new church The Chosen Vessel Cathedra in Texas where he pastors.
Tentatively titled The Chosen Vessel, the new live album recording which comes off on Friday, February 21st will offer Marvin the opportunity to be reunited with his musical masterminds (His producer Aaron Lindsey and vocal director Myron Butler – some of the best in the industry).
Though Marvin Sapp’s recent album was ‘Close’ released in 2017, this will be his first live recording after I Win which was released in 2011 having ‘I win’, ‘Teach my hands to war’, ‘My Testimony’ and ‘Deeper’ being some of the hit songs included on that project.
All of Sapp’s previous live recordings have taken place in his hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan, except I Win, which was recorded at Evangel Cathedral in Fort Washington, Maryland. Sapp is excited to bring the electrifying energy of the live recording experience to his new city, which has embraced him warmly.
“This recording is special to me because I’m doing it in my new home–literally and figuratively. I never imagined that I would live in and pastor in the DFW Metroplex, and now that I am here, I can’t wait to continue to connect with the community and immerse my church into this side of my ministry through this live recording,” Sapp said.
The Chosen Vessel album will be released on RCA Inspiration/Verity later this year.
Phil Thornton, SVP and General Manager of RCA Inspiration/Verity, says,
“Marvin Sapp continues to be one of the most powerful and prolific voices in Gospel, whose live performances and compelling songwriting always make a vibrant, profound experience that is unforgettable. Truly a don’t-miss event, I can’t wait to see the thrilling songs that Marvin and his incredible musical team have created, performing his new album in his new church live for the first time!”
