Yolanda Adams embarks on a national church tour with fellow Grammy nominee, newcomer J. Moss, and hip-hop violinists Nuttin But Stringz. Adams and company will kick off "Yolanda Today" with a special benefit concert for survivors of Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana's capital city, Baton Rouge on Jan. 10, 2006; and have dates scheduled nationally through late February. 

Adams will perform many of her classic tunes on "Yolanda Today," in addition to new music from her latest CD, "Day By Day," released by Atlantic Records on Aug. 30, 2005.

Also onboard for "Yolanda Today" is multiple Grammy nominee J. Moss. His debut album, ''The J.Moss Project,'' has earned rave reviews and a Stellar Award nomination for Best New Artist. "Yolanda Today" will also introduce Nuttin But Stringz, two brothers, Damien and Tourie Escobar, who fuse classical and urban music with violins.
