Having one of the most revered voices in music, co-signed by music icons Aretha Franklin, Patti LaBelle and Chaka Khan. Fantasia makes quite the return as she announces a stellar 29-city, North American tour she headlines with Robin Thicke, Tank,- and The Bonfyre. Fans will hear their favorite Fantasia hits along with a first-live-listen of songs from her soon-to-be-released seventh studio album, "Sketchbook" set for an October release via Rock Soul/BMG.
"PTSD" serves as the sophomore single after the release of "Enough," which peaked at number two on the Billboard Adult R&B charts, was featured on both Spotify’s New Music Friday and Apple Music’s R&B Hot Tracks playlists, and garnered a hail of praise after Fantasia's invigorating performance of the single at the 2019 BET Awards. Acclaimed as doing "Anita and Whitney proud," and giving "real rhythm and blues, old soul power love R&B feel" "Enough" grabbed the ear of the masses. "PTSD" is set to do the same with its sultry, potent feel that everyone can connect to. Both tracks give a gratifying glimpse into the direction Fantasia is taking for the highly-anticipated album "Sketchbook."
North Carolina native Fantasia broke onto the scene in 2004 as the season three winner of Fox's American Idol. Later that year, she released her platinum-selling debut album Free Yourself and became the first artist in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 chart to debut at #1 with her first single, "I Believe." The singer's eponymous sophomore effort, released in 2006, featured the #1 R&B single "When I See U," and reached gold status. In 2010, Fantasia earned her first ever Grammy Award for the hit single "Bittersweet," off her critically acclaimed third album Back to Me.In addition to being a mainstay in music, Fantasia adds author and actress, to her growing list of accomplishments. In 2006, she released her New York Times best-selling memoir, Life Is Not a Fairytale, and starred as herself in the Lifetime movie of the same name. In 2007, Fantasia landed the coveted role of Celie in Broadway's "The Color Purple" for which she won a Theater World Award.
