Hallelujah! LOLZ!

American Idol's Fantasia has signed on to take the lead role in a biopic about Mahalia Jackson. The film, simply titled Mahalia, will follow the gospel legends rise out of poverty in New Orleans to one of the most iconic gospel singers of the age!

Fantasia's deal has scored her not only the lead, but also a percentage of the gross.

Pretty sweet, girl! If it performs well, expect a lot of $$$ to come your way! Wouldn't that be nice?!

    What is really funny about this blog and relating to Fantasia is when they have something that might be preceived negative, there are lots of comments and they are almost aways hateful and negative..But when she gets props or does something right 0 comments..That shows that ppl are nothing more than racist *** Haterz! GTFOH! FANTASIA congrats, now on to bigger and better things! Jhud better look out!

    ew this "thing" needs to go away with gaga and beiber. although at least those other 2 know how to sing instead of this crazy trash

    When I watched her sing on the last American Idol season I was appalled! She has such a strong voice but her songs are horrible! I couldn't understand what she was singing! If this woman wants to make some money she really needs to start singing songs that everyone can understand.

    it's doubtfull she can pull off mahalia. the movie should have done years ago with somebody like jennifer holliday when she was in her prime

    would much rather see Queen Latifa do it
    and would love to see her do a movie on Pearl Bailey's life
    .
    she is completely underrated as an actress and needs a chance at a part that will garner her some nominations
