Her audition version of Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary” made her an early favorite in the competition. Her standout performance during the course of the show was a heartfelt staging, begun seated, of the Porgy and Bess standard “Summertime” that left her in tears from “feeling the song”; and earned praise from the judges, as well as landing her on the Emmy Awards’s 2004 list of greatest television moments. “Summertime” was also labeled by idol judge Randy Jackson as the best performance in the shows history.

the style of her new album will be a blending of the avenues she has touched musically, which include, American Idol and Broadway. She also revealed that she will be writing songs and will collaborate again with Missy Elliott, The Underdogs and Midi Mafia, who produced one of her bigger hits, "When I See U."

Fantasia was cast by Oprah Winfrey as Celie in the film adaptation of “The Color Purple” musical, which is to begin production after the release of her third album.
