    I was reading more reviews for the Color Purple and all of them rave of Fantasia's performance in the show. I am so happy for her.

    She just won a pretigious award for her Broadway debut. If she's as good as her reviews say she is, I bet there's a Tony Award nomination in her future.

    Re: Fantasia Barrino - FINALIST

    I saw Fantasia in the Color Purple a week ago on Broadway. Place was packed, and the show was stellar. They all received a standing ovation, particularly Fantasia, and it was well-deserved. You wouldn't think it was her when she first comes out in her dowdy clothes and shy demeanor. Totally transforms into Celie. Then, she eventually grows in confidence and just lets that beautiful voice shine. You can feel her frustrations, her sadness, and finally her faith in herself as Celie. She really deserves the praise she's getting. I was moved, and several others were moved to tears as well.
    Why is it boys talk so much, when they have nothing to say? And girls have plenty to say, but no one will listen?
