Opening act Fantasia is a powerhouse, a dynamic and forceful singer who really impressed me with her vocal range and styling originality. Winner of the third season of American Idol, she wore a short black dress that showed off the tattoos running down the entire length of her left leg and when she decided to take off her high-heels and continue barefoot she still sang her heart out at the side of the stage while a guy took them off for her, her hand on his shoulder helping her to balance.
Charr photo brass tacks: We shot from the sound board the first two minutes of the stand-up routine. Then two minutes of the musical portion of the show. I wish we could have shot the first few seconds though. It was stunning. Foxx, wearing a beautiful white suit, stood at the top of the steps, backlit by a glowing triangular yellow beam of light and it was just a gorgeous visual. It was all I could do to control myself and keep the camera down.
