Hit song is #1 at gospel radio for 32 weeks; currently #10 on Urban AC chart

May 9, 2008

Marvin Sapp New York, NY – May 8, 2008 – An intensely pure and impassioned refrain expressing how God’s grace helped Marvin Sapp through one of the most difficult times of his life has become a triumphant anthem that has taken radio by storm.

This week, after spending 32 weeks as the #1 song at gospel radio, Marvin Sapp’s “Never Would Have Made It” becomes the longest running #1 radio single across all formats in the history of the BDS chart and surpasses former record-shattering hits that have topped the Adult Contemporary, Rock, Hot AC and Regional Mexican charts for 25 weeks or more. Gaining a new and growing audience at urban mainstream, “Never Would Have Made It” is currently the #10 most played and #3 most increased airplay single on the Urban AC Chart.

“We are immensely proud to have made radio history. This is a great moment for Marvin Sapp and a great moment for gospel music that will stand for years to come,” says B. Jeffrey Grant-Clark, Zomba Gospel’s Vice President of Promotions/Artist Relations.

Marvin Sapp says, “This has been such an amazing experience, because we weren’t even going to put this song on the album. The song was birthed during a time of pain that I thought would be my breaking point, but everyone has had a never would have made it moment and that’s why I think the song is receiving such a tremendous response.”

“Never Would Have Made It” is the first single off of Sapp’s blockbuster CD THIRSTY, which is in its 22nd week as #1 on the gospel sales charts. THIRSTY was released July 3, 2007.

A division of Zomba Label Group, Zomba Gospel is comprised of Verity Records; Gospocentric Records; Kirk Franklin’s Fo-Yo Soul Entertainment; Quiet Water Entertainment; F. Hammond Music and New Life Records. Zomba Gospel is based in New York, with offices in Los Angeles and Nashville.
