Gospel singer, Yolanda Adams, was among those recently honored at the National Urban League's Women of Power Awards Luncheon on July 27th.
The Luncheon honors women who we have shattered "glass ceilings and made a lasting impact on their communities through the work they do," according to Marc Morial, President and CEO of the National Urban League.
She is one of the best-selling gospel artists of all time.
She's sold over 10 million albums worldwide. In addition, she's won 4 Grammy Awards, 6 NAACP Image Awards, and 16 Stellar Awards.
Yolanda Adams was the first Gospel artist to be awarded an American Music Award.
