Fantasia Barrino, R&B singer who won the 2004 season of “American Idol,” has written her first gospel song. Since debuting on the reality TV show, Fantasia has an impressive list of awards, including one Grammy and several nominations. She has also performed on Broadway in “The Color Purple” and “After Midnight.”
“I just wrote my first Gospel Song. All by Myself,” Fantasia shared with her 1 million followers on Instagram and Twitter. “Not sure what’s happening but all I can say is the enemy has really been testing ME. Thanks @von cocapt for this track.”
She also posted a short video clip along with her Instagram and Twitter message, saying, “I hope you like it.” Her latest masterpiece is heard blaring in the background of the video.
“I was able to release everything I was carrying,” she added.
Fantasia has spoken about her faith before in a variety of interviews. This is the first time her music has reflected that personal aspect of her life.
“God put me here for a reason,” Fantasia said in a 2013 interview. “When you look on TV or turn on the radio or all the newspapers and the magazines, it was always something negative, and no matter how many things I did that were positive, that never came out, so that was the hardest for me at that time. Now, I really don’t care anymore.”
