[New York, NY – March 30, 2011] Grammy Award and American Idol Season 3 winner FANTASIA will return to American Idol tomorrow night (3/31) to make her national television debut performance of “Collard Greens and Cornbread,” the third single from her current critically-acclaimed album Back To Me. The single will impact urban radio on April 11th.
The Doo-Wop reminiscent “Collard Greens and Cornbread,” which flashes back to the Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell timeless duet “Your Precious Love,” was written and produced by Warren “Oak” Felder and Andrew “Pop” Wansel.
“Bittersweet,” Fantasia’s first single from Back To Me, which she launched on American Idol last May, recently won the North Carolina native her first ever Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and a NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Song.
One of the most electrifying live performers of this generation, Fantasia will take to the main stage at this year’s New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival on April 30th and the Essence Music Festival July 1-3, also held in New Orleans.
