After more than ten weeks of competing in the second season of “Sunday Best,” 32-year-old Y’Anna Crawley of Washington, D.C., was dubbed the winner during Sunday’s one-hour season finale.
But more than the ten weeks of competition and the five weeks that passed from the time of her audition to her selection, Crawley said she felt like she had been preparing for the moment her entire life.
“Through the ups and downs and highs and lows, God has truly been faithful and I owe it all to Him,” she said.
Nine years ago, the single mother of two decided to quit a bank job to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a professional singer. Crawley says singing has always been her passion, even at the early age of seven when she first began to sing at church.
“Even when I thought my treasure had lost its value, [the Lord] knew and reminded me constantly of the investment that [He] made in me,” she expressed Sunday.
To land a spot this year on the second season of “Sunday Best,” Crawley had to be selected from more than 15,000 hopefuls who auditioned from around the nation.
