"My heart is full of gratitude for so many who have been along this journey with me.  I could never have imagined my career taking me to so many amazing places and meeting so many people who have changed my life forever....

She has won five Grammy® awards, four Billboard Music Awards, three platinum records, five gold records, over forty Dove awards, and twelve million units sold.
