Unlimited Entertainment has announced Fantasia & Her Friends will perform June 12th at Cedar Park Center featuring Raheem DeVaughn, Avery Sunshine and Comedian Shaun Jones. Fantasia has enjoyed chart-topping, triple-platinum and multi-platform success since winning season three of American Idol. The Grammy Award winning R&B singer-songwriter, actress and author is hard at work on her fifth studio effort, the follow-up to her critically-favored 2013 LP, Side Effects of You.
Crafting this, her fourth album, was like a dream come true for Fantasia as she made it her mission to tap into the music that has inspired her over the years. “When I was growing up, we listened to so many different types of music in my house,” she remembers. “It started with gospel and then the blues because my grandfather loved B.B. King. Of course I loved listening to my girls Monica, Brandy, TLC and SWV, but I also played Billie Holiday, Josephine Baker, Elton John, Ella Fitzgerald, Luther Vandross, Anita Baker, Bonnie Raitt and Queen. You can listen to any of those artists today because their music still stands and that’s what I wanted to do with this project. I want my music to be timeless.”
