“Never Would Have Made It” Tops AP Best Songs List

TBGB congratulates Pastor Marvin Sapp. His “Never Would Have Made It” tops the Associated Press’ best songs list of 2008.

Writes AP Music Writer Nekesa Mumbi Moody (Dec. 12, 2008):

“If you want to create a mix-tape of the year’s best songs, here are the must-haves for 2008.

“1. “Never Would Have Made It,” Marvin Sapp: Of course, a gospel tome is inspirational — that’s the whole point, hello! — but Sapp’s stirring song was more than that. It moved the listener to the core, which few songs, even gospel tunes, have the power to do.”

  1. This is one of the best Gospel songs–if not the best–of the year. What an inspiration!

    I think this song resonates with anyone–which is everyone–who has been through a struggle or a circumstance and know that it was God–and only God–that got him/her through.

    I know that I “Never Would Have Made It” without the Lord, too.
