"Fantasia for Real" Season 2 is set to premiere in fall 2010.

VH1's "Fantasia for Real" will give viewers a close-up view into the complex, touching and surprisingly relatable life of recording artist, actress and "American Idol" winner Fantasia Barrino. The series follows Fantasia as she juggles her career and single-motherhood while devoting her energy into recording her highly anticipated third album.

Six years ago, Fantasia was a young single mother from High Point, North Carolina, singing in her church choir and struggling to raise her daughter, Zion. On a whim, she tried out for the third season of "American Idol," and seemingly overnight the world discovered Fantasia's tremendous voice. Five years and 8 Grammy Award nominations later, life couldn't look more different for Fantasia. Her first album, "Free Yourself," was a platinum-selling, chart-topping success, bringing her wealth, fame, and recognition as an accomplished artist. Fantasia has worked with many music industry legends, including Elton John, Aretha Franklin, Patti LaBelle, and Missy Elliot. In 2007 Fantasia was chosen to star as "Celie" in the acclaimed Broadway musical "The Color Purple." Her book "Life is Not a Fairy Tale" made the New York Times bestseller list, and she also starred in a made-for-television movie based on her life.

As Fantasia's fame has grown, her personal life has increasingly become more complicated. The sole breadwinner for her large family, Fantasia struggles to balance career, family, and the demanding life of a highly successful performing artist. Fantasia's VH1 series delves into how she has dealt with the seismic aftershocks of fame, all while managing the daily demands of life on the road and writing and recording new music that will connect with her fans.

The series is executive produced by Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell, and Jeremy Simmons for World of Wonder. Executive producers for VH1 are Jill Holmes, Kristen Kelly and Jeff Olde.
