Fantasia/Kandi Burruss/Eric Benet 

8 p.m. Saturday, January 1. The Fox Theatre, 527 North Grand Boulevard.

Fantasia Barrino has built quite a résumé since winning it all on American Idol in 2004. She's managed to write a best-selling autobiography, land a leading role on Broadway and score her own reality show on VH1. Her powerfully soulful (and charmingly raspy) voice has drawn comparisons to greats such as Gladys Knight and Aretha Franklin, making her a favorite in the contemporary R&B category. Fantasia's currently out promoting her third album, Back to Me, with a tour of the same name. Industry veteran and The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Kandi Burruss (formerly of Xscape) will be opening in support of her new album, Kandi Koated. A performance by Eric Benét is also scheduled.
