Fantasia To Play Mahalia Jackson in New Movie



fantasia-Mahalia-Jackson

I can’t wait to see this film R&B singer and American Idol winner, Fantasia Barrino has been chosen to play the role of Mahalia Jackson in the Queen of Gospel’s biopic. The feature film will be based on the 1993 book “Got to Tell It: Mahalia Jackson, Queen of Gospel” which covers the life of the singer, and the role she played in the Civil Rights Movement.

Her story will begin from Jackson’s journey from poverty in New Orleans to her rise to fame and celebrity as a gospel figure. She tragically died in 1972 at the young age of 60 due to heart failure and diabetes. Filming will begin in April in Pittsburgh and Chicago for a December release.
