2013 saw Fantasia serve up blazing collaborations with Destiny’s Child stars Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. As many will recall, Rowland was tapped to feature on the singer’s Urban smash ‘Without Me’, while Williams joined forces with the American Idol alum for a remix to recent Gospel single ‘If We Had Your Eyes’.
Continuing their show of sisterhood, Ms. Kelly and Michelle paid a visit to the ‘Lose To Win’ singer backstage at ‘After Midnight’ – the hit Broadway show she’s currently starring in.
Already great to see the talented support one another.

There exists a trend in the industry that sees gifted singers sadly benched in favour of models who can breath to a beat. Unfortunate? Yes. However, it arguably allows for a deeper appreciation of those that are still carrying the torch for talent. Case, point, Fantasia.
The vocal powerhouse continues to earn praise aplenty for her ever-consistent catalogue and unmatchable stage showings.
This weekend saw her demonstrate the latter at Clive Davis’ Annual Pre-Grammy Gala, where she tore the roof off LAs the Beverly Center with a super-charged performance of ‘Stormy Weather’ (lifted from te Broadway production she recently starred in, ‘After Midnight’).
See why we’re giving Ms. Barrino thunderous applause below…
