On his Instagram page, Tyler Perry shared the amazing moment Fantasia took to the stage and carried the audience along with her remarkable performance.

"The songwriter has come a long way with struggling with things like mental health and financial health."


In the video, the songstress could be seen rocking her signature cropped hairstyle while sporting a brown flowery dress with a pair of dark shades she completed her look with a pair of knee-high boots. 

The main attraction was her strong vocals as she walked around while the audience couldn't help singing along and loving the performance all the way.


The audience weren't the only ones blown away by Fantasia's singing as fans on Perry's timeline trooped to the comments to show their admiration and approval for the diva.

BET shares that Fantasia's brief performance was a rendition of her 2006 hit track, "When You See Me." Madea, while on stage, had called on the R & B crooner before Fantasia charmed the audience.

The performance ended with Madea and the audience giving a standing ovation to the star singer.

Fantasia, alongside many others, is a big fan of tyler Perry's comic character, Madea. But she and the versatile actor also come a long way.

According to AJC, the songstress was once in an interview on the "Tammi Mac Show" where she opened up about getting herself together and years of struggling with scandals.

The "American Idol" alum revealed that she might be a celebrity, but she had to do a lot of things by herself to get back on track. At this point, she told the host about how she got helped by Perry: 

"Tyler Perry's actually a good friend of mine... He was one of the ones when I lost everything; he came and blessed me. And I thank him for that."


The songwriter has come a long way with struggling with things like mental health and financial health.

According to Chicago Tribune, back in 2010, the soul songstress went through backlashes from paparazzi and a scandal about her breaking someone's marriage.

Barrino even attempted suicide after she got overdosed on sleeping pills and aspirin.

But these days, Fantasia seems to have gotten out of her struggles. Presently she has a new album underway and looking forward to happier times.
