During my latest visit to New York I went to see Fantasia in The Color Purple. It was the most perfect performance I have ever seen on the Great White Way.
She sang her showstopper at this year’s Tony Awards. The video is good, but seeing her sing the song in context, with her amazing acting skills, is priceless. If you can get to New York before she ends her run in January 2008 do so.
I cannot rave enough about Fantasia’s performance as Miss Celie.
