Last night's (April 23) edition of the Singersroom sponsored LoveJonesNYC, which honored American Idol winner and soul veteran Fantasia, was filled with an abundance of spirituality and positivity. Billed as the official album release party for Tasia's brand new album, Side Effects Of You, the event, held at XL Nightclub in New York City, will be cherished by all its attendees for a lifetime.
Before taking the stage to thank everyone in the audience and perform her single, Fantasia was blessed with an intense tribute, which included art, dance and performances from R&B singers Joe, Kenny Lattimore and Yummy Bingham, gospel crooner Vashawn Mitchell, as well as her favorite fan.
An emotional Fantasia later took the stage and conveyed her gratitude to the jammed-packed room. Speaking on her new album, she says "I haven't felt this much love since my first album," insisting she did this project the way she wanted. She then transitioned into her single, "Lose to Win."
"Most people say: Why is she still here? How does she do that? She suppose to been gone. But what God has for me, is for me," Fantasia says about her career in the clip. "No weapon formed against me, shall prosper…just me."
This was definitely a beautiful night!
