Yolanda Adams (pictured) is one of America’s most successful gospel singers from the standpoint of SoundScan saturation, as well as critical acclaim.

Adams, 55, has sold over 12 million gospel albums in the U.S. and the world combined. The “How Great Art Thou” performer has also won four Grammy Awards, as well as four Dove Awards from the Gospel Music Association.

The Houston, Texas native has also collaborated with other highly-decorated musicians in gospel, as well as different music genres. Her “Yolanda Adams Morning Show” on AM radio is highly successful and can be heard on almost 40 different radio stations.

However, in a very recent interview with Black Enterprise Magazine, Adams talked more about her lesser-known abilities as a very well-established entrepreneur. She explained that her spirit as a business person was deeply instilled in her by her father.

Adams own a company called Simply Yolanda, which is a sales conduit for her variety of personally branded products, such as blended coffees, body washes, and other beauty essentials. She embodied a valuable lesson from her father when she first started her business two years ago.
