The Best of Me: Greatest Hits

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Elektra/Atlantic's Best of Me collects 12 of inspirational gospel queen Yolanda Adams biggest hits, including "Victory," "Open My Heart," "I Gotta Believe" and "Be Blessed," as well as her cover of R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly." This doesn't include any tracks from her years with the Verity label, so fans looking to replace 1999's Best of Yolanda Adams should hold onto their copies, but as a compilation of her later works with Elektra goes, it's as solid a collection of contemporary gospel tunes as one could hope for.
