LOSE to WIN: A Battle I Know Too Well! Fantasia Performs Live on American Idol!

Fantasia Performs New Hit Single "Lose to Win" on American Idol.
Fantasia Performs New Hit Single “Lose to Win” on American Idol.

Watching Fantasia stand in the very spot she started from, riddled with emotion, I started crying uncontrollable tears. See I know first hand what it’s like to lose, with no winning in sight. For me, this performance was a holy ghost takeover. With bitter sweet chills, bottom lip trembles, magnified over the airways healing so many young girls who may have never experience this kind of heartbreak, but now have hope that they can survive one. Plus, healing the mature woman as well, who knows exactly the name of the man who these lyrics apply to. Who she lost herself to. Who she’s fighting to take her power back from, now in this very moment.

Young Aretha I call her (Fantasia), still so very vulnerable, humble and approachable.  I only wish I could’ve heard from you last night. I can see the blessed energy running through you, and I understand why you couldn’t say anything after that spiritual fight. I’m sure you’ve performed that song countless times. On TV Shows globally, but I think maybe because you were full circle, standing on the stage that launch your dynamic career, GOD took over and you left everything on the stage.

You’ve had an amazing walk in life. Now you have a wonderful and joyful journey ahead of you. Unbeknownst, you’re taking me with you. You truly undressed this pretty picture I created, and reminded me I still have some healing to do. I sincerely thank you for that. I will continue to pray for your greatness, your peace, to accompany you even whenever you feel the pressures of mass media and unforgivable press. The industry is brutal, but what you have surpasses all things superficial. I see the GOD in you. Let your light shine girlfriend!!!

Many Blessings!
