Yolanda Adams

Don't ever say this gal has gotten too high and mighty to come back to her hometown and perform for her local brethren. Sure, you could say that, but it would be the devil talking. The truth is -- even as she's become the first lady of gospel (excuse me, "inspirational") music and won numerous accolades, even as she's become the most recognizable face to musically preach the word of God since Mahalia Jackson -- Adams has always found time to sing for her brothers and sisters in Houston. So say "Amen" and pass the collection plate along.
