While scrolling through my Instagram account today I discovered Fantasia recently opened Rock Soul Boutique, an online store that features some of her own designs, as well as a bevy of her more gently worn items.
Fantasia said the store has been a work in progress for some time now, and that eventually she hopes to open up an actual brick and mortar location in her hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina. read more » » » »
Fantasia recently sat down with CNN and for the first time explained what prompted her to miss over 50 performances last year during her run as Celie in the Broadway production of The Color Purple.
The American Idol winner, who is now back starring in the play, says an unexpected health scare is what sidelined her run last summer, and ultimately forced her to seek a backup plan… an education.
“Actually, I had tumors, I was having surgery, and I was just tired,” says Fantasia. “I didn’t understand why I was so tired. I would go from “The Color Purple” and go get IV’s because they would say I was dehydrated but it wasn’t that. I had two tumors that were draining everything out of me.”
The tumors were in Fantasia’s throat of all places and the singer says she was unable to speak for over six weeks. Fully recovered now, Fantasia says almost losing her voice prompted her to to go back to school and seek her high school diploma.
