Bishop Marvin Sapp is telling his life story in his new film Never Would Have Made It: The Marvin Sapp Story premiering on TV One on Sunday, August 21.

The biopic will follow the preacher’s journey from his life as a child in Michigan, the battles he faced with drugs and alcohol, and his love story with his late wife MaLinda Prince Sapp.  Chaz Lamar Shepherd, who plays Marvin Sapp, says that fans will be surprised to learn that he “wasn’t holy-minded all of his life.” He shared that he never imagined that he would be right for the role and has been an admirer of the gospel artist.
