Yolanda Adams has already tackled the gospel music industry, but now she is gearing up to make her mark on the world of skin care, television, books and movies.
Adams, 52, is well known in the gospel music industry for a powerhouse voice that has earned her a number of accolades including four Grammy Awards, sixteen Stellar Gospel Music Awards, four Dove Awards, and a host of others that include an American Music Award, NAACP Image Awards and BET Awards. While the singer has not released an album in three years, her work schedule has done anything but slow down.
She has returned to BET’s “Sunday Best” gospel music competition where she currently serves as a judge each Sunday and let The Christian Post know why the role is important to her after joining the show in 2010.
“I get the chance to pour back into some young people who think they know what this business is all about, to help them understand that it’s more than just the presentation on the stage,” Adams told The Christian Post. “It really is about honing your craft and doing something away from the cameras and just being happy that you’re a part of something that’s this huge.”
Aside from starring on the popular television program, Adams also hosts a syndicated radio show, “The Yolanda Adams Morning Show,” where she is heard in at least 39 markets. While her voice has been heard on many radio stations throughout the years, the veteran singer has managed to make history as a radio broadcaster.
Although Adams is happy to be the first woman in gospel music to have a morning radio show in a market dominated by men, she realizes that there was a bigger purpose for her taking over the platform each morning.
