THE BEST OF YOLANDA ADAMS may very well be one of the best collections of a gospel artist's work released this decade. It showcases not only the full range and depth of Adams's splendid voice, but also the genuine conviction she pours into each and every song. Whether it's the high-pitched riff on the churning "Through the Storm" or the low growl on the foot-stompin', hand-clappin' "The Only Way," there's no denying the compassion behind the lyrics. It's so genuine, it's infectious. Versatility is Yolanda Adams's forte. The sermonizing "The Battle Is the Lord's" is just as enjoyable as the hip-hop-inspired "Gotta Have Love." This collection is loaded with feel-good songs ranging from piercing testimonials like "Even Me" to contemporary praise jams, such as "Only Believe" and "You Know That I Know." Fast or slow, traditional or modern, this life-affirming music sung by an amazing vocalist must be a gift from above. Say amen, somebody.

The Best of Yolanda Adams based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Yolanda Adams is truly one of Gospel music gems. Every project just sparkles! She has an excellent catalog of music that most artist dream of. Each song selected is a hit all on it's on. From Through the Storm to Just A Prayer Away to The Battle Is the Lord's to What About the Children to Is Your All on the Altar and Still I Rise. This cd will certainly brighten your day, encourage your soul and push you to go on a little bit further. She also jams a tad bit too with The Only Way, Gotta Have Love and Only Believe. So don't think that ballads are Mrs. Adams only area of power, she can riff through a jam like no one else can. So sit back and get ready to enjoy the explosive, dynamic, exciting, powerful and God chosen Yolanda Adams!
