Soldiering On...

In 1990, Yolanda catches the attention of producer Ben Tankard, who signs her to his label Tribute Records. As Tankard's goal is to open up gospel with a jazz-inspired sound, Yolanda's showcases more horn-inspired vocals. Between 1990 and 1995, she releases the albums Through the Storm, Save the World, More Than a Melody and Yolanda... Live in Washington.
