It’s refreshing to see our favorite celebrities take time to help spread the word and raise awareness about matters that are important to our community. We all have busy schedules but service to others and being self-less really makes a difference and enriches our lives.
Grammy award winner and host of her own morning show, Yolanda Adams recently stopped in Newark, New Jersey at the Willing Heart Community Care Center while on her annual Believe in Healthy BP tour.
