10 Times Fantasia's Love for Husband Kendall Taylor Tugged at Our Heartstrings

Kendall Taylor seems to love his woman deeply and she’s basking in the glow. Here are 10 times Fantasia's expression of love for her husband lit a glow in our hearts.

In 2003, a 19-year-old single mother and her brother drove from the projects of High Point, North Carolina to Georgia in pursuit of a dream. This young mom was sexually abused in high school and at 14 she had dropped out. By 17 she was pregnant and was unable to get a job, so she went on welfare.

Not much may have been going right in life for this Southern girl, but one thing she did have was a voice. Watching Ruben Studdard win the second season of “American Idol” sparked something within her. That’s how Fantasia Barrino ended up at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta to audition for season 3 of “American Idol.”

“Out of more than 40,000 people, I was the last person to audition,” Fantasia told Oprah back in 2007 as she recounted how she ended up on the show, which she ended up winning. Since then she’s released 6 albums, has written a book called “Life Is Not a Fairy Tale,” had her life story turned into a TV movie, and played Celie in the Broadway production of “The Color Purple.”

LOVE ME LIKE YOU DO

In 2015, Fantasia married Kendall Taylor. “Everything changed when I met him,” she told Billboard. “I just knew [he was the one],” revealed the mom of two. “I was getting ready to go on the road, and he got on his knees and said, ‘Can I pray for you? I just want to cover you down the road.’” Before they met, Fantasia had been fasting from relationships and her prayer had been for “someone that could cover me and my kids and be the man of the house.”

While the “Enough” singer admitted to xoNecole that it’s not all “peaches and cream,” she’s never looked happier and appears to be very much in love. Here are 10 times she gushed over her husband.

1. “I’d Do It Over and Over Again”

Fantasia and Kendall got married on July 18, 2015. The following year on Christmas Day they decided to tie the knot all over again. We’re talking about the whole nine yards – flowers, dress, tux. “It’s almost like I may have known you in another life,” wrote Fantasia.

2. “I Hate Leaving You”

The way Fantasia and her man are holding each other close before they say goodbye… Is this the “real love” Mary J. Blige was singing about? “When he speaks to me it’s almost like the world shuts up and I only hear his words,” wrote the singer.

King!! You are my voice off stage.. I mean don’t get me wrong I have my own unique Voice but you have a gift to speak and I respect and Cherish it, maybe a lil more than you. What I’m saying baby is that sometimes I wish I could let it flow out like you and I will one day, in my on way by doing what you’ve shown me to do. More reading, watching different things that are taking place around the world and educating myself on the hidden Truths. God put us together for a reason and I’ll Sing it but you’ll Speak it. And together we will Conquer the ears and minds of all people. You are my King, my Lover, my covering, my best friend, my homie, my business partner, my writing partner, my spades partner, my dancing partner, my workout couch and the best part of it all is your my “HUSBAND” and all mine! I’m not ashamed of who I was but I see who I’m now becoming and it’s all because of you. And by the way Mrs. Taylor wrote this!! 😘😘😘😘

3. “God Put Us Together For a Reason”

There’s no better way to flex than with the person you love. Fantasia and Kendall get that. “I’m not ashamed of who I was but I see who I’m now becoming and it’s all because of you,” the “American Idol” alum said.

4. “I Trust Him”

Fantasia has a man who “went from controlling the music on set to rushing over to keep me warm once we cut!” Sis, please share that prayer you made.

ON THIS PICTURE I HAD ALREADY ABOUT CRIED MY EYES OUT #weddingday Happy Anniversary King Kendall 🤗 we did it Baby. Most people think it's only been Two Years but I'm about to jump up and run around this room giving God All the Praise because it's been THREE!!! Funny how we did it and No One even knew it but the closest people to us. Having you in my life taught me a lot about Life, you showed me that I don't have to give all of myself away so quick to people and to this industry. You showed me how to save a little for myself and when I began to do that things changed for the better. So many people walked away when you came into my life but I saw clearly why they did so. They realized that they could No longer use me and take from me because my Protector had came for me. God, You are my Father and you saw fit to let this Be for me and my Kids and if I had 10 thousand tongues I couldn't Thank You enough. It's not a Day that I go without being told I'm Beautiful, or without being touched on, or without a Kiss, a Hug and being told I am a Queen😢 Kendall LaMar Taylor I Love You Dude you are my BEST FRIEND AND I WILL ALWAYS STAY LOYAL AND TRUE TO YOU ❤️ Rock Soul

6. “We Risked Everything”

We just love how Fantasia and Kendall coordinated their looks for the Grammys, where she, together with Yolanda Adams and Andra Day, paid tribute to Aretha Franklin with a joint performance.

7. “You Are The Best Gift”

Kendall went all out for his lady’s birthday, with a specially prepared breakfast, a gift, a lunch date, another gift, and a dinner date followed by – you guessed it – one more gift. “Today you made my day,” wrote Fantasia.
