Social media buzzed last week after R&B singer Fantasia Barrino turned one of her recent concerts in Florida into a powerful worship service.
Several videos posted online show Barrino passionately singing a cover of Jonathan David and Melissa Helser’s worship song “Abba.” The worship was so soul-stirring, 10 people reportedly gave their lives to Christ at the concert.
Before singing “Abba,” Barrino had an eternal reminder for the audience.
“There’s so much going on in the world today. But you must understand it is God who is your president. He’s the only man you should put your trust in. Why are we acting crazy? You better chase and seek after Him. What happened to praying for your sister and your brother? Nobody does that anymore. Learn how to pray for your sister and your brother,” she said, overcome with emotion.
One attendee said God was in the room during the concert.
“I know God’s presence and without a doubt He was there! Fantasia had the whole building, worshiping God. I’m not surprised that people were saved. She poured her heart out for God that night. I was truly amazed and grateful to have been there to witness it,” one person told The Christian Post.
Other commentators agreed, saying her tour has served a bigger purpose.
