Malinda Sapp passed away earlier today due to complications from the disease.
Praise Houston first broke the news writing, ““It’s with our deepest sympathy that we inform you that Pastor Marvin Sapp’s wife MaLinda Sapp has passed on today after battling colon cancer.”
MaLinda had been diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer in 2009. Following treatment, she was given a clean bill of health before her cancer recurred earlier this year. Pastor Sapp had been calling for around-the-clock prayer for his wife from his fans in the gospel community.
The couple have three children – Marvin II, Mikaila, and Madisson.
MaLinda’s was a limited licensed psychologist, licensed professional counselor and a college professor. In addition, she supported her husband’s gospel career by serving as manager for Marvin Sapp and was credited as Executive Producer on many of his audio and video recordings.
Marvin Sapp is best known for chart topping Gospel songs “Never Would Have Made It” and “The Best in Me”.
Our deepest condolences go out to the Sapp family.
