American Idol alumnae Fantasia Barrino, who won Season 3, is slated to appear in a feature-film adaptation of the 1993 book Got to Tell It: Mahalia Jackson, Queen of Gospel, which recounts the life of the late American gospel singer, a civil rights activist who was also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Barrino, who dealt with some major personal issues at the end of last year, including a suicide attempt, is moving onward and upward.
