In announcing the song ‘Shine,‘ Hall said she knew from watching the former American Idol contestant compete that they were bound to work with each other one day. “She embodies what it means to be a woman – she is loving and giving to others, and she shines.”
“Fantasia in a word is everything – she has been an inspiration and a friend to me for many years. Her story, her life and her presence shake me to my core – from the first time I saw her on ‘American Idol’ to the time I saw her perform and move the crowd at The Apollo. I knew I wanted to partner with her in some way; I didn’t know then that it would be for the theme song for my daytime talk show, but I knew we were destined to do something together. She embodies what it means to be a woman – she is loving and giving to others, and she shines.”
For her part, Fantasia explains that song, “represents the positive energy that these types of women fight to bring into their own communities …
“It was a pleasure and honor to record ‘Shine’ – the theme song for Tamron Hall’s new daytime show. I’ve been a fan of hers for many years as she represents all women out there who are strong, smart, hardworking and resilient. Women who are taking care of business while operating at high levels as great mothers, daughters, aunts, nieces, etc. This song represents the positive energy that these types of women fight to bring into their own communities, and I know Tamron will bring the same approach to viewers nationwide with her new show.”
The drama surrounding her exit from NBC in 2017 is was highly publicized, as the network nixed the popular host to make way for former FOX News anchor Megyn Kelly. Kelly, who is no longer with the network, never gained the anticipated ratings.
All eyes will be on Tamron Hall, when the nationally syndicated show debuts Monday at 2pm on CBS.
