buzzz worthy. . .
RCA Inspiration gospel recording artistMarvin Sapp's new holiday album "Christmas Card," which hit retail stores and online Tuesday, October 22, offers a unique blend of contemporary music and traditional holiday standards that set the tone for the season.

For popular 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 performed by artists passionate to convey the reason for the season, 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."

The Stellar Awards winning and Grammy nominated artist dominated both contemporary and gospel music charts with the 2007 smash hit single "Never Would Have Made It", which held the #1 position at radio for 43 weeks, maintaining the top spot longer than any artist in Billboard's history - including the Beatles and Elvis Presley.  Sapp went on to release the chart-topping albums "Here I Am" and "I Win". 

The first single "Home for Christmas" (feat. Joe) will be serviced to radio on November 4 and the album "Christmas Card" is available for purchase atTarget.comWalmart.comAmazon.com, ITunes and other retail and on-line stores.
