Fantasia Pressing Forward With Appearances

By: / August 17, 2010

Still recovering from a pill overdose that landed her in the hospital last week, Fantasia Barrino is pressing on with the planned promotional tour in support of her new album, Back to Me.

Even as she is also embroiled in a sex tape scandal – and being sued by a North Carolina woman who accuses her of destroying her marriage – Fantasia, 26, will perform on Good Morning America on August 24 and honor other scheduled appearances, she said in a statement released by her label, J Records (via Us Weekly:)

I can’t thank my fans enough for their prayers and support during such a challenging time…It has given me the motivation to get back to work …I put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this album and I pray that everyone enjoys it as much as I do.”

In the midst of a rough stretch, Fanatasia managed to debut the video for her new single, (the aptly-titled) “Bittersweet.” Check it out below.
