Celebrated award-winning American gospel singer, Yolanda Adams is set to perform in Accra early next year, according to sources close to the adorable minister of God.

There is scanty information about the concert but sources say that a performance contract between her management team and a local events company was signed last week, paving the way for a very big musical concert on January 7.

Working with some of the biggest names in pop, R&B, hip-hop, and Gospel, the Grammy-winning Gospel/Adult Contemporary superstar’s career has been marked by a string of hugely successful albums, sold-out tours, stand-out TV appearances, and a desire to incorporate into her music a multitude of genres and influences.
A lifelong resident of Houston, Texas, Yolanda grew up in a household filled with spirit, soul, and songs. Her mother studied music, and Yolanda and her five younger siblings heard everything from jazz to classical to rhythm and blues. She soaked up the sounds of Gospel legends James Cleveland and the Edwin Hawkins Singers, jazz icon Nancy Wilson, and pop/R&B great Stevie Wonder. That wide swath of sonic textures, combined with years in the church choir, would guide Yolanda – both as a performer and a person.

The singer and radio show host has sold over 4.5 million albums since 1991 in the United States.
