Earlier in September, fans discovered that singer Fantasia’s brother, Xavier Barrino, was in the hospital after being involved in a terrible motorcycle accident. According to a music news website, Xavier, who is also a talented singer, was riding his motorcycle when another vehicle hit him.
In an Instagram post, the award-winning singer revealed that her brother had six surgeries, multiple broken bones, a bladder infection, failing kidneys, a feeding tube, and more. However, she reassured, “[He’s] still here. You can’t tell me the father can’t do it...We have a long road ahead of us but the Father walks before us and we follow Him.”
Fantasia, who rose to fame after winning American Idol in 2004 and has won multiple awards since, immediately requested prayer from her followers. Fans joined her in prayer, then were suddenly amazed by what she did for another patient.
While seeing her brother in the hospital, a woman kindly asked if Fantasia would sing for her husband, who had also been in a recent accident. Fantasia happily accepted her request.
Her song choice was a song of the gospel, highlighting the lyrics “We belong to you.” As she sang, she pointed up to heaven and spoke hopeful words to the man in between verses.
