If you were wondering even by the slightest margin if true love still exists in the marriage this will move you. Marvin Sapp took time out to talk about the death of his beloved wife.
“She was a wife that I planned on having for life,” says Sapp, who had three children with his wife of 20 years. “It’s still a process. It’ll probably be a life-long process. No matter what happens in my future. Some things you just don’t get over.”
The 44-year-old Sapp says he still finds it hard to imagine not having his wife around.
“Every day is a new day,” Sapp said in a recent phone interview. “There are days when I get up and I cry, thinking of her. There are days thinking of her and I smile. There are days when I’m angry. Days that I’m not. … We miss her.”
Last year, Sapp’s latest album “Here I Am” debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top 200 albums chart, making it the highest ranking gospel album in the chart’s 54-year history of tracking album sales. His eighth album was led by single “The Best in Me.”
Seven months after the release of his record-breaking album, his world was rocked when his wife MaLinda Sapp died in September 2010 after a nearly 18-month fight with colon cancer. He and his 43-year-old wife had three children together — a 17-year-old boy and two girls at the age of 14 and 12.
