Fantasia To Play Gospel Great Mahalia Jackson

Popeater just announced that season 3 American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino will portray gospel legend Mahalia Jackson in a film adaptation of her biography.

Even though there has been talk of Fanny playing Aretha, I find this role a better fit for her. Mahalia has a very interesting backstory and with the right director and script, Fanny could be looking at Oscar gold.
