*Marvin Sapp is ready to share with the world his experience of losing his wife.

The Gospel singer will be recording his testimony/album pretty soon, but it’ll be with a twist.

“I’m Still Standing” will be recorded live on stage in Washington, D.C. with all new material.

“It’s the first time I’ve actually done a live record outside of my comfort zone… of Grand Rapids, Michigan,” Marvin admitted, “D.C. is one my largest audiences. They buy tons of records of mine in Washington, D.C. … So we’re going to do something different and see how it works.”

Sapp will be recording the album at the Evangel Cathedral in Upper Marlboro, Md. on Oct. 7. This will be the first album the singer has recorded since the passing of his wife MaLinda last September.

He says this album will commemorate the events and demonstrate to listeners the trials he endured and the victories he obtained during the tragic moments.

“The focus of this record is how you can come through situations and still remain on top,” Marvin explained. “It’s about how the enemy has a way of hitting you with stuff to cause you to fold and buckle, but I’m still standing.”

The album’s release is slated for 2012.
