I'm gonna sing out.
I wasn't a fan of Fantasia. And then I watched this video of her singing "I'm Here" from The Color Purple. On repeat for three days. I wish I was kidding.
Fantasia is pure magic on this song. She lays it all on the line and bares her heart and soul. There's an undeniable vulnerability to Fantasia in this that I find unbelievably truthful. She's not trying; she's just being. Who woulda thunk Fantasia and musical theatre would work so well together? Check it out.
