Grammy awards winner, gospel singer Yolanda Adams will be performing ‘America the Beautiful’ to kick off the main show at WrestleMania on 7 April at MetLife Stadium, New Jersey.
Known as the “First Lady of Modern Gospel,” Adams has sold over 12 million albums worldwide and was the radio host of her own nationally syndicated morning gospel show “The Yolanda Adams Morning Show.” Named as the No. 1 Gospel Artist of the last decade, Adams has won five Grammy Awards, 16 Stellar Gospel Music Awards, four Gospel Music Association’s Dove Awards, one American Music Award, seven NAACP Image Awards, one Soul Train Music Award, and five BET Awards.
