Yolanda Adams, who was awarded Billboard’s Top Gospel Artist of the Decade in 2009, stated she loves Kanye West’s work and appreciates it even though it isn’t traditionally related to the church. But Yolanda sings in the Gospel category as well.
Yolanda believes that Kanye West is doing great work and is pulling in a new generation to the Gospel circuit. Many young listeners of Kanye do not know that he has past Gospel work such as his song “Jesus Walks.”. Released in 2004 and performed side by side with Yolanda at the 2004 BET music awards.
