Fantasia Barrino's daughter proud of her Broadway performance

08/29/2007 at 10:01 PM ET

Fantasia Barrino has not only won over Broadway fans as Celie in TheColor Purple, but has found a new fan in daughter Zion, 6, too. Worried that Zion would not understand theshow, the singer, 23, tried to explain she was acting to her and wassurprised by her daughter’s reaction afterwards.

I didn’t think she was going to get it. I sat her down and tried totell her, ‘Mommy’s not really being hit, Mommy’s just acting.’ Afterthe show, she told me, ‘Mommy, you are beautiful.’ She’s very proud ofwhat Mommy’s doing, and that makes me very happy.

I’m always surprised at how much children really ‘get’. Zion sounds like a sweet little girl.

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
