The Fantasia Barrino Story
FANTASIA BARRINO STORY: LIFE IS NOT A FAIRY TALE
Director: Debbie Allen
Starring: Fantasia Barrino, Loretta Devine,
Kadeem Hardison, Viola Davis and Jamia Simone Nash
Fantasia Barrino was a teenage dropout who had no money, no education and no
chance at a real future. At 16, Fantasia found herself in an abusive
relationship that left her pregnant and lost. But she refused to give up on her
dreams. This is the true story of how this inspiring young single mom used her
incredible voice to become an American Idol, as well as a Grammy®-nominated,
platinum-selling recording artist. Not only will Fantasia play herself in this
New Original Movie with an all-star cast, but she’ll sing too. Acclaimed Emmy®-
and Golden Globe®-winning choreographer, director and actress Debbie Allen
directs this inspiring tale.
