New York, NY (Top40 Charts) WHAT: On April 9, the Recording Academy will unite the worlds of music and politics at the annual GRAMMYs on the Hill Awards. The Awards will honor four-time GRAMMY-winning gospel artist Yolanda Adams for her advocacy on behalf of fellow creators and Tony- and Emmy Award-winning actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth for her philanthropic contributions to the music community.
