The Sapp Kids put on their best wear for the 13th annual Symphony With Soul concert on Saturday, March 1, 2014. The event was held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and was preceded by the Celebration of Soul dinner that featured the Dr. MaLinda P. Sapp Legacy Awards presentation.
Marvin II, Mikaila, and Madisson participated in the Dr. Malinda Sapp Awards presentation segment that honored three individuals who have contributed much to the community. Marvin couldn’t get over how much his kids have matured over the years telling social media fans, “My babies aren’t babies anymore.”
The Gospel singer wrote a touching message to his deceased wife on her birthday saying, “I met you in 76 on the playground. We married in 92 and you transitioned from this life to life eternal in 2010. Today would have been your 47th Birthday. The kids and I will celebrate you today at the Celebration of Soul Event this evening. You are one of the key reasons that I am who I am today and you always gave me selfless unconditional love…. Love you still and I miss you so much #enoughsaid.”
MaLinda Sapp passed away in 2010 after battling with colon cancer for several months. She and Marvin had three kids together.
