Gospel singer Marvin Sapp is mourning the death of his wife and manager, MaLinda Sapp, who lost her battle with colon cancer Thursday after fighting a Stage 4 diagnosis. Below is the statement from the family: “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. It was confirmed on the Lonnie Williams show today. An official press release has not been issued yet but more details will be coming on the Yolanda Adams Morning show tomorrow morning! Earlier this year, Marvin Sapp was testifying of how his wife, MaLinda, was given a clean bill of health by doctors after being diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer in 2009. But then, those health concerns resurfaced and Marvin Sapp requested intense, around-the-clock prayer.” MaLinda Sapp was a professional counselor and administrative pastor at her husband’s Lighthouse Full Life Center Church in Grand Rapids, Mich. The couple had three children. May she Rest in Peace. Marvin Sapp is one of gospel music’s most popular stars. His 2008 song “Never Would Have Made It” set records for its duration on the charts, and he recently had a No. 1 hit on Billboard’s gospel charts with the song “The Best in Me.”
