As await the final sales figures for Fantasia’s new album, Side Effects of You, the songstress gave us a special showing to pass the time. Earlier today, she made a guest appearance on ABC’s The View and wowed the crowd with an emotional performance of “Lose to Win” that brought one of the hosts to tears.
Sherri Shepherd fought back the waterworks as Fantasia testified to the audience with “Lose to Win”. Although the rendition of the tune was certainly stunning on its own, it carried additional meaning for the audience following Fantasia’s tale of how she almost lost it all.
“I wanted peace,” Fantasia said her attempted suicide. “I was taking care of everybody; holding everything down and there were so many things that were going wrong in the career. Being so young, winning American Idol at 19 and nobody really preps you. It just all goes so fast.”
