Fantasia: Motown in the new Millenium

CORNBREAD AND COLLARD GREENS! Fantasia is back and she ain't afraid to bring some old school soul with her. YES GIRL!

Last week I saw her on American Idol and threw my shoe at the TV (a sign of overwhelming R.E.S.P.E.C.T according to my girl Nicole Julian) Damn she good! But not only is she a commanding force on stage and a brilliant vocalist with her sassy growl and her Ella Fitzgerald riffs, she takes risks!!! Who else could take a song about comfort food and make you BELIEVE.  "We're gonna take it back old school IDOL!" She demands! You can see this performance here or on her website:

For me that's what soul does. Simple lyrics. Epic delivery. Thank you Tasia.

Look for her upcoming album appropriately titled "Back To Me" comin soon! Till then get your cornbread on ;)
