As part of our continuing coverage of women in music for Black Music Month, BlackEnterprise.com headed to New York’s London NYC hotel to catch up with gospel powerhouse Yolanda Adams, whose new album, Becoming, was released last month . We talked to Adams–an artist and a business woman who has extended her brand to include her own syndicated radio show, a newly launched clothing line and a health and wellness tour to combat hypertension–about the importance of diversity, confidence and knowing when to “Be Still.”
