Having one of the most revered voices in music, co-signed by music icons Aretha Franklin, Patti LaBelle, Chaka Khan, Fantasia returns to the stage with special guest Tank. Fans will hear their favorite Fantasia hits along with a first-live-listen of songs from her 7th studio album, “Sketchbook.”
Fantasia recently released the second single off the album, “PTSD” featuring T-Pain. While remaining sexy and provocative with its infectious, laid-back beat, “PTSD” speaks to good riddance of a love that is far from conducive to your mental-health stability.
“PTSD” serves as the sophomore single after the release of “Enough,” which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Adult R&B charts, was featured on both Spotify’s New Music Friday and Apple Music’s R&B Hot Tracks playlists and garnered a hail of praise after Fantasia’s invigorating performance of the single at the 2019 BET Awards.
North Carolina native Fantasia broke onto the scene in 2004 as the season three winner of Fox’s “American Idol.” Later that year, she released her platinum-selling debut album, “Free Yourself” and became the first artist in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 chart to debut at No. 1 with her first single, “I Believe.” The singer’s eponymous sophomore effort, released in 2006, featured the No. 1 R&B single “When I See U,” and reached gold status. In 2010, Fantasia earned her first ever Grammy Award for the hit single “Bittersweet,” off her critically acclaimed third album “Back to Me.” “Side Effects of You” followed in 2013, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard R&B Albums Chart and No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200. On July 29, 2016, Fantasia released her fifth studio album, “The Definition Of…,” which became her third consecutive No. 1 R&B album debut, her fourth top ten debut on the Billboard 200, and earned her another Grammy nomination for Best Traditional R&B Performance.
In addition to being a mainstay in music, Fantasia adds author and actress, to her growing list of accomplishments. In 2006, she released her New York Times best-selling memoir, “Life Is Not a Fairytale,” and starred as herself in the Lifetime movie of the same name. In 2007, Fantasia landed the coveted role of Celie in Broadway’s “The Color Purple” for which she won a Theater World Award. Fantasia returned to Broadway in 2013 as the first celebrity engagement in “After Midnight,” a dance-focused musical that celebrated Harlem’s iconic Cotton Club during the Harlem Renaissance in the 1920s and 1930s. After receiving rave reviews, Fantasia joined the cast of “After Midnight” for a second run in May 2014.
