FantasiaIn anticipation of her third studio album, 'Back to Me,' 'American Idol' winner Fantasia Barrino recently graced our L.A. studio for a live Sessions performance.

Taped just days before her much-publicized hospitalization, the soulful singer was in good spirits as the cameras rolled. In the following exclusive clip, you can catch a glimpse of Fantasia's infectious personality as she lounges in the green room, glams up for her photo shoot and takes the mic for her big performance.

Get a sneak peak at the Sessions experience in the video after the jump. The full performance will be launching on Tuesday, Aug. 24.
