Barrino's The Definition Of Tour will begin in Macon, GA on Nov. 19 according to her Fantasia Official site. Tickets for the opening date and select cities to follow are on sale now.
The Charlotte, NC native began her singing career as a contestant on the vocal competition show, American Idol where she walked away as the winner for the third season.
Her success only grew from there and granted her a record deal with several top charting albums and singles.
Now, on her sixth studio album and prepping for her next tour, Barrino decided to go right back to where it all began for her career and pay it forward to another rising soul singing American Idol alum.
Idol's runner-up for the final season formed a connection with Barrino during their short encounter during the show. The "No Time For It" singer bonded with Renae off of similar life challenges and accomplishments that they both share.
"When we get on that stage I want you to look at me as the sister that went through the same stuff you went through so we the same," Fantasia expressed to Renae during the show rehearsal just before their duet.
After that stellar Idol performance it was inevitable that the two would collaborate again soon for something great. And it has happened. Renae has been added as a special guest to join the "Sleeping With The One I Love" singer on tour.
The announcement came on the heels of her new music "Good Woman," the lead single off her forthcoming album. And also follows her phenomenal finale performance of "Battles," a song also featured as one of the 2016 Olympics' theme songs.
Also announced as a special guest is breakout R&B star, Guordan Banks, whose single "Keep You In Mind" quickly rose to the number one position on the R&B Adult Chart back in June, as reported by Billboard.
Other dates for the show will soon be announced but as for now all #TeamTasia, #Raenation, and Banks fans can purchase tickets for these dates and locations listed below.
