Celebrities’ personal lives are judged harshly by the public, gospel stars even more so. So the idea of reality television featuring gospel singers is a hard pill to swallow. Pastor and gospel singer Marvin Sapp seems ready for the challenge.
He has signed on to star in a reality show currently titled: “Marvin Sapp: Single Dad.” The show, which will film his life raising his three children (Marvin “ML” Sapp II, MiKaila, and Madisson) as a widowed father (he lost his wife of 20 years, MaLinda, to colon cancer) and pastoring his famous church.
The show is currently being shopped to networks by Open Rivers Pictures, though some outlets are reporting it will air this fall.
“Marvin Sapp: Single Dad” could be a candid portrayal of the challenges any God-fearing man faces as he raises teenagers, or it could invite a whole ‘nother level of scrutiny into the lives of the Sapp family. We’re hoping for the former.
