RCA Inspiration will continue to release projects under its name and Verity will be reborn with Marvin Sapp as the first artist to release an album under the label which was originally formed in 1994. Sapp’s album will hit stores September 29, 2017.
Phil Thornton (Verity and RCA Inspiration SVP & General Manager) says:
“It’s an honor to launch Marvin Sapp’s new single ‘Close’ and his much-anticipated new album as the first release in reintroducing the iconic label Verity! Bishop Sapp is a dynamic icon whose signature sound and invigorating ministry have continued to have a worldwide influence, uplifting countless millions of people as a singer, songwriter, and Gospel leader, with one of the most gifted voices there is today.”
It’s unclear whether or not RCA Inspiration will be dissolved. It’s also not known how parent company Sony Music will determine which artists are released under what label. Le’Andria Johnson for instance will be releasing her new album in July under RCA Inspiration, with the same executive staff as Marvin Sapp.
Non-the-less Verity and RCA Inspiration are excited about their plans for the future after new young talents have proved viable. Among those being breakthrough artist Travis Greene.
Over 20 years ago Verity was the flagship home to a diverse roster of growing acts and legends, releasing albums from Marvin Sapp, Fred Hammond, Richard Smallwood, Hezekiah Walker, Yolanda Adams, Twinkie Clark, Vickie Winans, John P. Kee and many more.
