More About Yolanda Adams
For Gospel legend Yolanda Adams, her stirring Elektra debut Mountain High…. Valley Low was an opportunity to bring both her inspirational vision and her wide range of influences to an audience hungry for spiritual fruit. Since her 1988 debut, the acclaimed and uplifting Just As I Am , Yolanda has been wowing gospel audiences all over the world. In 1999, four studio albums and one live album later (the Grammy nominated Yolanda…. Live In Washington ), the Houston , Texas native is ready to extend her magnificent reach without watering down the message. "I'm not one of those singers who wants to expand my audience at the expense of the people who already know my music," she says determinedly. "And I've grown both vocally and spiritually since my first album, through each phase of my career. So choosing Elektra was just another step of growth. Gospel music had stepped up and gathered a myriad of influences-jazz, hip-hop, R&B. I need to be in a place where my message can be heard by everyone. I understand my purpose. I understand what I was put here for. I take that on every day of my life."
It's precisely that kind of conviction that has caused critics to refer to Yolanda as one of gospel's "seminal" voices. It has also empowered her to venture out of gospel's more sanctimonious confinements, and hook up with some of pop's most formidable producers, such as Keith Thomas, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Yolanda stresses, however, that it was the process of "sharing" talents that made the unique collaborations such a great success. Thomas produced and wrote "The Things We Do."
"I had a chance to work with him," she says, "he's worked with so many great people, like Vanessa Williams and Wynonna Judd. It was awesome. He's the kind of producer who pulls stuff out of you that you didn't know you were capable of." Yolanda also had high praise for the duo Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, who helm the ethereal "Open My Heart," "Wherever You Are," and the disc's feel-good closer, "Already Alright," all which they co-wrote with Yolanda. "Coming from the gospel world and being able to work with them was a dream come true," she says. "They provided leadership and gave me the leeway necessary to develop the songs. They wanted me to bring material to them so that I wouldn't lose connection, for non inspiration. Their input and approval really encouraged me as a writer."
Religious audiences have been validating Yolanda for well over a decade. She was employed as an elementary teacher in Houston when she first began to garner recognition for her stunning performances. "I taught second and third grades. I would go on the road during the weekends to sing. Pretty soon the demand started growing. I realized I might be able to make it my career."

Great CD! Mar 8, 2006
This CD has a wonderful array of worship and contemporary gospel songs. My favorite song is 'In the Midst of it all'. Therefore, if it were the only song on the CD I would be thrilled.

Breathtaking Aug 6, 2005
This is Yolanda Adams at her very best! "Open My Heart" is breathtaking, but just as stellar is "The Things We Do", with audio footage of Martin Luther King, Jr. in the background. This song lets you know that it's the little everyday things we do for the people we love that matter. Yolanda, the things YOU do and the things YOU say are the greatest gifts you'll ever give away!!!
Yolanda "Opens Her Heart" on this album!!! Dec 15, 2004
Yolanda is one of the great gospel artists of our time. Her voice is amazing. Which makes this album one of her best. This album fills you with joy, love, and the praise for God. The album opens with the song "Time To Change" which explains "It's been too long it's time to change, you can't get away with everything. Which is a true message, I really love that song. Another song "In The Midst Of It All" says that throughout your storm Jesus will be with you in the midst of it all. The lord will never leave you. Her amazing song "Open My Heart" is a great song that says when you open your heart to Jesus and let him in he will heal you of your problems. I really love that amazing song from Yolanda. Following this song is "Whever you Are" which is saying wherever Jesus is where I wanna be. I love the beat on that song and the message is a strong one. Well that's my review on the album. I really think this album is one that's worth buying. Yolanda really opened her heart in this inspirational gospel project.
