Season 3 American Idolwinner Fantasia will team up with her mother, Diane Barrino Barber, to perform a dueton BET's Celebration Of Gospel, taping Saturday, December 12, in Los Angeles. The showwill air on January 10, 2010.
They will sing BeverlyCrawford's No. 1 gospel song "He's Done Enough."
When Fantasia met Bobby atthe 2008 BET Awards, she told him that she wanted to be on his show.
"I've been watching this showever since I was a little girl," Fantasia told Jones. "We would sit at home in theliving room, and catch the Holy Ghost, shout in the living room. It's just ablessing and honor to be here tonight."
Brian Dickens, Fantasia'smanager, sparked the idea of having mother and daughter sing live together onBobby Jones Gospel last year. In June, they sang the song at the Chicago Gospel Music Fest.
"They have performed together in years past aswell as on TV," Dickens said. "We selected the song simply because it applies: 'He's done enough' if he never does anything else."
This year marks the tenthanniversary of BET's Celebration Of Gospel. It will be hosted by comedian SteveHarvey and will also include performances from Ledisi, YolandaAdams, DonnieMcClurkin, Pastor Shirley Caesar, Marvin Sapp, BeBe and CeCe Winans, as well as Anthony Hamilton and his wife Tarsha.
