    Did you know that Marvin Sapp has charted the highest-ranking Gospel album in the history of the Billboard 200?

    Sapp’s ‘Here I Am’ entered the Billboard 200 at #2 in 2010, thus giving him the honor of having the highest-charting Gospel album in the history of the lineup. In fact, the LP even bested Kirk¬†Franklin’s ‘The Rebirth Of KirkFranklin’, which reached #4 in 2002.

    Ironically, Sapp’s ‘Here I Am’ shares its title with Kelly Rowland’s own 2011 release but the latter album peaked at #3 on the Billboard 200.¬†Listen to the title track of Sapp’s ‘Here I Am’ below:

    • I liked the work he did with Commissioned. And no, I didn’t know he had this ranking so kudos to him for being a successful Gospel artist.
