Fantasia Not Pregnant, Playing Mahalia

Fantasia has packed on some pounds, however it’s not a baby! Fanny’s people quickly squashed such rumors and revealed Fantasia’s new movie role staring in a biopic about the legendary singer Mahalia Jackson.

The film is an adaptation of the 1993 book “Got to Tell It: Mahalia Jackson, Queen of Gospel,” which recounts the life of the late gospel singer and a civil rights activist who was also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

According to Billboard, film will be directed by Euzhan Palcy (“A Dry White Season”) from a script by Jim Evering, and goes into production in April in Pittsburgh and Chicago for a December release.
