Fantasia won’t sing Mahalia Jackson recordings for biopic

While Fantasia will star in an upcoming biopic of gospel great Mahalia Jackson, the film will use Jackson’s original recordings. “I really wanted to be authentic,” producer Dave LaCour Simien tells the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “We wanted to make sure if we do it, we do it right.”

Shooting on the film is scheduled to begin in April in Chicago and Pittsburg
