Rev. Yolanda is a singer/songwriter/trans-femme genderqueer performance artist and interfaith minister, originally from Muscle Shoals Alabama- The Hit Recording Capital Of The World. Rev. Yolanda's body of musical work has been honored with induction into the The GLBT Hall Of Fame, the Blues Hall of Fame, and two MAC Awards. Rev. Yolanda is currently working on a full length, autobiographical musical theater piece entitled "The Church Of The Alien Love Child Presents: The Passion of Rev. Yolanda".

Rev. Yolanda was born and raised in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, The Hit Recording Capital of the World and the birthplaces of Helen Keller and W.C. Handy.

The Muscle Shoals area is populated by an abundance of musicians and visual artists/painters. Yolanda began studying music, painting and drawing at a young age with local artists and was encouraged to develop her own unique vision, which combines GLBT culture, gender identity, drag performance, personal spirituality, and a love for Old Time Gospel Music. Yolanda is influenced by pop, rock, blues,gospel, country, and folk, but doesn’t self-consciously follow any one tradition…combining them all into some hybrid of her own.
