FANTASIA BACK IN THE STUDIO
According to reports, “Fantasia plans to record her third CD the old-fashioned way. Fantasia likes the live sound from older albums, before technology changed the way they were recorded. She says she’s invited an orchestra to be in the studio to back her up when she sings.
The songs she’s been writing reflect the pain she experienced last year. She says she “went through a lot of things, business-wise, relationship-wise.”
Fantasia will also be starring in her upcoming VH1 reality show, expected to premiere sometime next year.
