Her incredible talent and style served to have her hailed as the most versatile contemporary gospel singer since Aretha Franklin.


Her brilliant follow-up albums have earned Adams multiple awards from music’s highest honors such as, the Stellars, Grammys, BMI, Soul Train Awards, NAACP Image, BET, and more.  In 2001, she opened a new category and was the first artist to receive an American Music Award for “Favorite Contemporary Inspirational Artist.”  Although the Gospel Music Association has continuously honored Adams through multiple Dove Awards, on May 9, 2017, she was inducted into GMA’s Hall of Fame for her outstanding achievements in the Christian music industry.


You may have also heard Adams on the radio airwaves where, for more than ten years, she has hosted her own show, “The Yolanda Adams Morning Show,” which has been heard in more than sixty markets nationally.
