The tour follows the August release of Barrino's latest album, "Back to Me," which features "I'm Here," the 11 o'clock number from the musical The Color Purple. It marks the first time fans are able to hear the "American Idol" contestant perform the song on disc. Barrino will also play engagements in Atlanta, GA (Nov. 11); Miami, FL (Nov. 14); Los Angeles, CA (Nov. 24); Dallas, TX (Dec. 2); New Orleans, LA (Dec. 4); New York, NY (Dec. 27); Washington, DC (Dec. 28); and Chicago, IL (Dec. 30).
Barrino won "American Idol" in May 2004 and also released the solo albums "Free Yourself" in 2004 and "Fantasia" in December 2006. Barrino earned a 2007 Theater World Award for her performance in The Color Purple on Broadway. She repeated her performance for several engagements of the recent national tour of the Tony Award-nominated musical.
