Even Angels

Album: Back to Me (2010)
  • This inspirational song is the first single from actress and R&B/soul singer Fantasia's third studio album. The 2004 American Idol champ first introduced it on her VH1 docu-series Fantasia For Real. She later performed it on The Oprah Winfrey Show on February 3, 2010.
  • Written by Heather Bright and produced by The Stereotypes, the song illustrates the steps Fantasia made to get her life back on track after various events that led to the mismanagement of her career. They include missing numerous Broadway performances of The Colour Purple due to a tumor on her vocal cords.
