Yolanda was raised together with her six siblings. She is a graduate from Sterling High School and Texas Southern University. After graduation she worked as a schoolteacher and part-time model, but resigned with a view to pursuing a career as a singer, which became the main source of Yolanda Adam’s net worth.

She made the first step towards fame and recognition while singing in Houston’s Southeast Inspirational Choir, which belonged to the Church of God in Christ. The well known music pieces of that time are the single “For My Liberty” (1982) and the studio album “Just As I Am” (1987). It was Ben Tankard who invited Yolanda to sign a contract with the record label Tribute Records in 1990.

Up to date, she has released 11 studio albums, four compilation albums and two live albums. According to the data of Soundscan, the artist has sold more than 4.5 million copies of her albums since 1991, which has considerably increased Yolanda Adams’ net worth.

The following albums topped the above mentioned chart: “Mountain High…Valley Low” (1999) certified platinum in USA, “Christmas With Yolanda Adams” (2000), “Believe” (2002) certified gold in USA and “Day By Day” (2005). Currently, she is working on a new studio album which is going to be released in the near future.

Confirming Yolanda Adams status is the fact that she is the winner of 16 Stellar Gospel Music Awards, seven NAACP Image, five BET, four Grammy and four Gospel Music Association’s Dove Awards which have also added much to her fame, and therefore net worth.
