This April Broadway will gain a new star when Fantasia join the cast of
The Color Purple . Fantasia will be playing the lead role of Miss Ceilie, a role that won Whoopi Goldberg an Oscar nomination and Broadway original cast member LaChanze a Tony award.
Fantasia recently made television appearances on American Idol and the Oprah Winfrey show to announce her broadway debut and she did so by belting out a beautiful song titled "I'm Here" from the show.
Fantasia's acting skills may be a little questionable, but there is no doubt the girl can sing! I feel a trip to New York coming on, probably in June just in time for Pride.
Her rendition of the song that sealed LaChanze's Tony win is amazing! Thanks for the mpeg Jeff!
