Fantasia Barrino Reflects on ‘Losing Everything Twice’ Amid Oscar Buzz


The truth is, Fantasia Barrino is grateful to be where she is today.

THE American idol alumnus, who first starred as Celie in the 2007 Broadway musical adaptation of The color purplereprized his role in the upcoming film which is scheduled to debut on December 25. And ahead of the film’s release, the 39-year-old has already garnered praise and Oscar buzz for her performance.

It’s a moment that she doesn’t take lightly.

“For me, having lost everything twice, having to fight to get back here, it feels good,” Fantasia — who has openly discussed her personal setbacks — told E! News in an exclusive interview at She Celebrating Women in Hollywood, December 5. “That’s why I’m going to appreciate it because my story has always been out there. I’ve never been afraid to share it. I feel like when you take tests, it’s your testimony. Otherwise , how can I help someone else?”

And even though she’s been through a lot in her life, the Grammy winner wants others to know that they can overcome any obstacle, too.
