What it seems as the last days of quality artists and musicians making music that speaks to the soul, Yolanda Adams did her part at the 2012 BET Awards show to let the young generation know how important we are.
Shouting out beautiful young women like Brandy, Monica, Beyonce and Solange as her inspirations, she touched the hearts of the audience in a way most speeches don’t.
Yolanda Adams spoke from a very personal place. Accepting an award for her first project under her own label, and facing much adversity during her career, Yolanda gave us a simple message
“We need all of ya’ll. I’m saying the world needs all of ya’ll in this room so please make sure that you use your gift responsibly cuz we’re watching; our babies are watching- and they wanna be like us.”
