Anybody following me on Twitter will be aware that I've been on a bit of a Fantasia kick this past week. You can thank her new single for doing that, since this "Even Angels" - from her as-yet-untitled third album - is a corker. It's like Beyonce's "Halo" but, ya know, better and it actually feels heartfelt instead of just being belted out. Can't wait for that new album to be released.
I've included that song below as well as 'Tasia performing at the Tony Awards. She's performing "I'm Here", the showstopper from the stage musical version of A Color Purple. It makes me instantly ready for the movie adaptation that is probably going to come out in 2012. She mightn't be able to act her way out of a paper bag (remember that terrible made-for-TV movie about her life?), but I'll be damned if she can't knock a track outta the park. Those final moments just blow me away.
