Fantasia Speaks On Her ‘Color Purple’ Role

Published: Wednesday 22nd Aug 2007 by Sam
R&B singer and Broadway star Fantasia recently gave a commentary on her role in the ‘The Colour Purple’:

“Miss Celie takes a lot out of me. I’m being told everyday that I’m ugly. … you can’t play the part if you don’t kind of put yourself in her shoes and live her life. So it’s like, I carry that stuff with me. I put myself in her shoes in having (daughter) Zion at such a young age and dropping out of school and being in just bad relationships and disrespected. I just feel like God won’t put too much on me than I can bear. As long as I feel like I’m touching somebody … as long as I’m blessing somebody, I know that I’ll be blessed.”

Pretty deep. I’m still hoping to see Fantasia in the show one day – the reviews of her performance have been phenomenal. More power to her.


Any thoughts?

    Fantasia is indeed phenomenal. It’s so great the promotion that god can give to her out of the midst of her troubles. I see it in my life; can’t lie about that.
