Barrino talks about performing the song Summertime on American Idol:
That was the night that everything changed. People came up to me and said, I wasn’t voting for you at first, but I have no other choice now, baby. That night, I wanted to be pure. I wanted the world to hear me cry out [sings]: One of these mornings, y’all gonna rise up singing, then you’ll spread your wings, and fly to the sky. I wanted people to see me, to change their minds about me. And that night, they did.
