For Yolanda Marant, gospel is the music of both personal testimony and incredible salvation. A sought after female vocalist, praise and worship leader and background singer, the Denver native is always willing to lend her expertise, gifts and noted voice to assist music ministries, churches and those that request her. She is internationally recognized as “Wildpraize” due to her compassionate, sincere and unrestricted ability to praise God and minister unto the people of God. This young lady has evolved into a true worship leader, inviting all to share in the praise experience as she lifts her voice in adoration to God.
Yolanda has been afforded tremendous opportunities to open and or perform with the following artists and organizations (to name a few): Lamar Campbell, Stephen Hurd, Crystal Akin, Maurice Rogers, Josh Groban, Kurt Carr, Michelle Prather, Lyle Lovett, Tramaine Hawkins, Yolanda Adams, Rev. James Moore, Donnie McClurkin, Mary Mary, Vickie Winans, Carnell Murrell, Vanessa Bell-Armstrong, Rodnie Bryant, Kim Burrell, Dorothy Norwood, The Clark Sisters, and Walter Hawkins. She has performed at such events as Urban Soul Café – The Bold & Beautiful, The National Baptist Convention, The Gospel Music Workshop of America, The Lion King, Church Mess Gospel Stage Play, Denver Jazz & Blues Festival, Heritage Christian Center Easter Productions, and the AIM Convention. In 2008, 2009 and 2013 the favor of God took Yolanda to Osaka, Japan where she serves as a vocal instructor at Soul Bird Music School. Over the past four years she has toured throughout Europe/Germany as a featured lead vocalist and background vocalist for Cedric Shannon Rives, Michelle Prather (Kurt Carr Singer) and Oscar Williams.
In 2006, Yolanda established Wildpraize Music & Media, Inc., a graphic design firm with the vision to assist the faith-based community, businesses, musicians and artists to bring their visions to life to impact the world. The now seven year old company has grown in to a graphic and marketing firm serving various ministries, music artists and businesses across the country.
