Gospel recording artis Yolanda Adams recently shared that God and her daughter are her two greatest inspirations.
“Success to me is being able to build a business empire and brand on my terms. I am self-employed and travel often,” says the star who has a thriving career that spans more than two decades.
“The most important message is for my daughter to know that she is loved,” explains Adams. “I make all the important events for her – honor society induction, PTA meetings and so forth. I love being a mom and cherish my daughter. Success is also having a happy daughter from the inside and out.”
In having a happy family, Yolanda tells media that she cannot live without “God and my daughter.”
The singer’s teen daughter, Taylor, has been exploring the arts onstage and is already showing musical ability. Although Adams would love to see her child follow in her footsteps, she refuses to forcing Taylor to do anything. “As a parent, I want to do her like my parents did me, not threaten her to just do music. I want her to be happy,” explains the singer.
Taylor is Yolanda Adams’ daughter with ex-husband Tim Crawford.
