Fantasia Performs “Even Angels” on ‘Oprah’

Fantasia’s team must be trying to form her into the next Mary J. Blige or Whitney Houston, because the big-voiced singer is sporting a more classy, mature look nowadays—gone are the days of the asymmetrical skunk hair and uh, whatever you call this. And they’re not just taking styling cues from those legendary divas—Fantasia performed a very Blige-worthy track on Oprah today, the inspirational “Even Angels.” Watch her powerful live performance after the jump:

Fantasia – “Even Angels”

Fantasia’s performances really elevate a mostly generic feel-good R&B song to something much more meaningful. The woman lives and breathes every word of her song—hell, she’s practically on the verge of tears near the end!

Although her personal life has suffered a bit, the Idol alum’s career is getting a second wind: her VH1 reality show is a hit for the network, and she’s about to drop her third studio album. With all this good luck, it’ll be that much more difficult for Fantasia For Real producers to find drama to feature on the show. (They can always invite the Jersey Shore cast for an episode!)
