    I love me some Fantasia, I wish she was performing The Thrill Is Gone though. I like Collard Greens and Cornbread is cool, but she would definitely bring the house down withe the other track

    I remember when I originally saw this song listed on the tracklisting and I thought, “what the hell?” But after hearing it, I was blown away. It’s a great R&B/soul song and I’m glad she is releasing this as a single. This might get Fantasia her second Grammy!

    Kyle so you were one of the ones hating and being judgemental because the track title.. people were str8 sterotyping her because she was black and though singing about collard greens and cornbread was ghetto.. That just goes to show that we need to stop being so judgemental and start uplifting our ppl.. I’m not coming at you, just saying.. I said “we” not just u.. Fantasia is in fact the Queen of Idol! Period

    My favorite Idol. Really excited that she’ll be exactly where she belongs — in front of 25 million people!

    Her performance was flawless. Fully soulful and she must have perfect pitch. Incredible dynamics. That voice is a gift to us all and we should be thanking the almighty that we have the privilege of hearing someone of that level live and in person. Only a handful can do what she does.
