Fantasia to Star In 'Color Purple' on Broadway

Fantasia Barrino announced on American Idol that she's Broadway bound, starring in The Color Purple this spring

The deal is done: American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino is set to channel "Celie" in the Broadway play The Color Purple. Fantasia announced her fantastic, new gig tonight on 'Idol' -- right before wowwing the audience with an emotion-charged tune from the B'way show.

There's great anticipation in Chicago about The Color Purple coming here this spring. Wouldn't it be wonderful if the Windy City cast for this Oprah Winfrey-produced venture included you-know-who? And you know who can make it happen.

Actually, Fantasia was in the running to play Effie in Dreamgirls at one time. I'm not sure why she didn't make it.

But what if Jennifer hadn't gotten that role, and Fantasia did?
