TVOne will air the BMI Trailblazers of Gospel Music Honors on Sunday January 29th at 7PM ET. The show will be hosted by Yolanda Adams and Vashawn Mitchell. Marvin Sapp will be honored for his 40-year music career.
According to BMI:
Marvin Sapp is one of the most beloved voices in the gospel genre. Though he may be best known for his crossover hit “Never Would Have Made It,” those who really love gospel music know him for such timeless classics as “Not the Time Nor the Place,” “You are God Alone,” and “I Believe,” to name a few. Sapp has enjoyed a decorated 40-year music career, receiving 22 Stellar Awards, two Soul Train Music Awards, two BET Awards, two Dove Awards and eight BMI Songwriter’s Awards, along with many other honors from national, regional and local institutions. He is a multiple GRAMMY and Billboard Award nominee and, in 2015, was named Billboard’s Top Male Gospel Artist. His most universal song, “Never Would Have Made It,” topped Associated Press’ Best Song List in 2008 and made radio history that year by becoming the longest-running No. 1 single across all formats. Sapp has one of the highest-ever Billboard Top-200 charting Gospel albums with his 2010 release Here I Am. His most recent project, You Shall Live, is Sapp’s 10th album and his fourth consecutive #1 debut.
