Marvin Sapp has raised the bar and broken records with “Here I Am,” his anticipated follow up to 2007’s “Thirsty.”
Not only debuting atop the Gospel Albums chart, Sapp’s “Here I Am” debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart in the company of mainstream acts including Ludacris, Lady Antebellum and Raheem Devaughn.
With 76,000 copies moved in its first week of release, “Here I Am” is not just Sapp’s best debut but the highest charting Gospel album in the 54-year existence of the Billboard 200.
Up until last week, no gospel album had reached higher than No. 3 – a rank that was met by Kirk Franklin & God’s Property with their 1997 album “The Nu Nation Project.”
