This was probably one of the most heartbreaking days of Marvin Sapp’s life. He was doing something he loved, singing, but for a very sad reason. The premature passing of his wife MaLinda Sapp – she died due to complications from colon cancer. On Thursday thousands gathered to pay tribute to MaLinda including family, friends, artists, actors, and fellow pastors. One luminary in attendance was the Reverend Jesse Jackson.
The funeral took place at MaLinda and Marvin’s home away from home – Grand Rapids Resurrection Life Church. In was dubbed a “Homegoing service,” one of the most touching things to happen was the Marvin taking the stage and singing “Here I Am” with Jonathan Dunn , a song which he said was “her song.” Karen Sheard, Israel Houghton and Donnie McClurkin also performed.
