Billboard Magazine Gospel Artist of the last decade, Yolanda, is a five-time Grammy Award-winning vocalist who believes that her music heals, encourages, and inspires others to trust more than themselves. She has triumphantly carried the torch for the contemporary gospel and inspirational music via 13 glorious albums. Stunningly beautiful, exceptionally educated, filled with the spirit, and blessed with one of the most influential voices in any genre of music, this Houston native and one-time school teacher has been a stately beacon of God’s light. She has earned numerous accolades for her shining efforts, including the first American Music Award for Contemporary Gospel Artist and four Gospel Music Association Dove Awards. Her pioneering blend of the modern gospel with R&B, infused with a touch of jazz, continues to inspire her fans and transform the musical landscape.
Aside from being an inspirational vocalist, artist, gospel songwriter, and jewelry and handbag designer, Yolanda is also an actress, philanthropist, and loving mother.
The Yolanda Adams Morning Show, a program created and owned by Yolanda, can currently be heard on radio stations across the country. Most of Yolanda’s fans know she was once a school teacher; less known is that she earned her college degree in radio/television broadcasting. Joined by her distinguished co-host, the hilarious Marcus Wiley, Yolanda’s show is about waking up in the sandbox every morning and having F-U-N! “We have a great morning show,” Yolanda says, beaming. “It’s not a gospel or inspirational show, but a versatile overall morning show. I wanted to create a clean alternative morning show for people of faith.
Faith, love, forgiveness, protection, and praise are just five of the ten gifts explored in Yolanda’s new power-filled inaugural book, Points of Power. Inspired by the Points of Power segment from her radio show, Yolanda reveals her experiences to show how the Bible will enlighten readers and provide them with insight and understanding to respond positively to life’s challenges.
Points of Power provide the tools, wisdom, and spiritual guidance for living a praise-filled, prayerful, and joyful life.
