About the Song
“You Kept Me” is the second single from Marvin Sapp’s album SUBSTANCE released on his label Elev8 Entertainment.
One of the emotions in this season of emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic is thankfulness and gratitude to God simply for keeping us in tact – our health, our emotions, our finances, our families, all of it. We know that many people did not come out on the other side of this pandemic, and we know that we did only because God kept us.
