Fantasia appears on the Oprah show today, and here she is, performing her new single “Even Angels”. I’m sure there was a sit down with Oprah–as soon as that video is available, I’ll post it here.
I’m not all that crazy about pop Fantasia–I like her all wild and crazy. But, I can’t begrudge her a chance at a pop hit, which this pretty ballad could give her. Yeah, it’s a little generic, but I’m hearing hit potential. What do you think?
ETA: Watch Oprah’s interview with Fantasia in two parts after the jump. And if you haven’t yet, check out her performance of her new single, “Even Angels”.
The producers of The Color Purple, including Oprah, weren’t happy when Fantasia began missing shows near the end of her Broadway run. At the time, Fantasia was not communicating with anybody about her health and family problems. Now that Oprah understands what Fantasia was dealing with, all is forgiven. Interesting to hear them both talk openly about what they were feeling at the time.
Also, got another look at Fantasia’s performance of her single “Even Angels” on my TV, and although I’m not crazy about the song, Fantasia got to me when she teared up at the end of her performance… (Fantasia can elevate any song, even her crappy coronation single, which became transcendent in her hands…)
You can catch Fantasia’s reality show Fantasia For Real on VH1.
