This was my first time seeing Fantasia in concert, and I have to say, she put on the show of a lifetime. She is one of the best performers I have seen in a while. Her and her brother Rico ripped the stage. Check out the trailer below for her reality show premiering Monday!

Fantasia is now a broadway and television actress who rose to fame as the winner of the third season of the television series American Idol in 2004. She has been nominated for eight Grammy Awards. After playing the part of Celie in the Broadway musical The Color Purple, she is cast to be in the film adaptation of the musical.

In the September 2008 issue of Sister 2 Sister magazine, Barrino revealed that the reason for her absences in The Color Purple was because of the development of a cyst on her vocal cords. She was ordered to immediately undergo surgery which later revealed that she in fact had a tumor on her vocal cords. She now reports that after a successful surgery, the tumor was completely removed and she is now well. Thank goodness for that blessing, because she truly is an amazing talent.


Also in the building was Mo’Nique, PJ Morton, KeKe Wyatt, Ruben Studdard, and Nene amongst others.

On another note, Big ups to my man Ruben Studdard who lost over 60 lbs! Stay tuned for his new reality show, where he goes door to door encouraging people to lose weight.

Here is video of Fantasia singing one of my favorite hits, Purple Rain, and some other old school classics. Brace yourself, because she KILLS it!!
