Yolanda Adams has performed all over the world and now she can add WrestleMania to the list. She is from Houston and is known as the “First Lady of Modern Gospel.” Last week WWE announced that the 5 time Grammy Award winning gospel artist would kick off the show by singing “America the Beautiful.”
Unlike other sporting events in the United States, WrestleMania chooses to sing “America the Beautiful” instead of the National Anthem. Celebrities such as John Legend, Willie Nelson, Gladys Knight, Boyz II Men and Aretha Franklin have all sung the opening song for WrestleMania, and now Yolanda Adams has been added to the list.
