From Essence

Soulful crooner Fantasia is gearing up to hit the Broadway stage in the jazz-inspired musical, After Midnight.

Directed by Warren Carlyle, the musical is set to showcase the work of Duke Ellington’s years at Harlem’s Cotton Club.

Fantasia will be the first of many guest headliners starring in the production and is scheduled to play performances through February 9, 2014.

The last time fans saw the American Idol alum on Broadway was in 2007’s The Color Purple, in her role as Celie.

Go ahead Fantasia! She is a true testament to what a change in your mind, body and spirit can do for your life. She’s looking better than ever and her career is really starting to go in a direction we always hoped it would for her.
