Grammy winning gospel recording artist Marvin Sapp's new holiday album "Christmas Card" is a first for this renowned singer. This unique blend of contemporary music and traditional holiday standards lean toward out-the-box sounds for Sapp.
For modern music fans, the soulful lead single "Home for Christmas" featuring R&B crooner Joe is reminiscent of classic contemporary holiday songs by Donny Hathaway or The Whispers. However, for those who love Christmas standards, Sapp reunites with gospel super-group Commissioned (Fred Hammond, Keith Staten, Mitchell Jones, Karl Reid, Michael Williams and Marcus Cole) on "What Child Is This?" and "Honor The King." The album also includes the title track "Christmas Card", "Feels Real Good", "Holy", "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", "Dance," "Love At Christmas,
"MaKaila's Shout Out," "Thank You," "Don't Get It Twisted," and "Joseph's Song".
"I'm excited about 'Christmas Card' for so many reasons. This release marks two firsts in my career - this is my first Christmas album as well as the first time I've co-produced an album," said Sapp. "It was also great to team up with Joe, who is an amazing R&B singer, and reunite with my brothers from Commissioned."
