Maybe that's why she's added testimony to her appearances lately. At a recent promotional appearance Fantasia told the crowd,
"I’m going through this phase in my life where I am tired of pleasing people. The key word is “My Life.” And I have to live it, and what I do is…I use my life as a testimony to help other people. Humans, people who really go through things. And not to long ago, I went through something, I really don’t wanna re-live, I don’t wanna ever be back in that place again. So I’m going to use this album and me getting on the stage to let loose and let free and tell my testimony every day because I’m never afraid or ashamed of who I am. So now I’m going to free myself again.
Me being in the studio and recording, I look back now and all the songs I did and it’s like… Man, I was preparing myself for all the things that happen. The songs came before the situations, it’s crazy but “EVEN ANGELS” have to learn how to fly. So, I was laying there in the hospital bed and I began to think about my journey so far and I had to learn how to fly again. Even though I’ve been doing this for six years now and I plan on going so much further. Coming out… I had to learn how to fly again so, now I’m ready."
They say Fanny uses a variation of this speech at before every appearance.
