Singing since age four Marvin Sapp has shared the stage with many gospel notables and his gift is celebrated across musical genres. He spent his teenage years singing with a number of Gospel groups and ensembles. He was a student at the unaccredited Aenon Bible College in Indianapolis, Indiana. He dropped out of Aenon after being invited by Gospel singer Fred Hammond to sing with Commissioned in 1991 after Keith Staten left.
In 1996, God led him to go solo and he established himself as a contemporary gospel solo artist and released his first CD “Marvin Sapp”.
