Can we please talk about this daggon woman named Fantasia!? Her talent is too much to bottle up into words. She is more than amazing. She blazed through her entire performance at the Soul Train Awards while honoring Babyface.
Fantasia performed “Exhale (Shoop Shoop)” sung by Whitney Houston from the Waiting To Exhale movie soundtrack and “Superwoman” sung by Karen White. Fantasia is a forced to be reckoned with, and Babyface knows it. He talked about her incredible talent in a recent interview with Billboard.
“She is clearly one of the best that has ever been. Her way of being able to take a song, no matter who sings it, and make it hers — I put her in the list with the divas, one of the great divas for me.”
The interviewer went on to say that Babyface has given Fantasia in particular a lot of praise, and this was his response: “She will find her hits and will find the story that she needs to tell. She’s just that great. When you have that kind of greatness, it comes to you at some point. I wouldn’t count her out. She won’t just be the awards show singer that we remember. I think her day will come. I still believe that.”
I agree 100% with every single word of his. I firmly believe Fantasia will go down in history as one of the greatest to ever do it! She’s one of the artist we will be honoring in 30 years for being a legend.
She sung both of those songs from the her soul. That’s a different type of singing. Check out her breathtaking performance below:
