Because of Who You Are- Vicki Yohe
In 1992, she recorded her self-titled independent debut album. This brought the attention of Giant Records, who signed her in 1994. She is best known for the songs “The Mercy Seat” and “Because Of Who You Are”—for which she received a Dove Award nomination, and for regularly performing on TBN’s Praise the Lord program. It was through her television appearance that CeCe Winans offered her the chance to sign with Winans’ new Pure Springs Gospel label. Yohe’s first release from the label was 2003’s I Just Want You.
