NEW YORK -- Sad you missed Fantasia Barrino on Broadway in "After Midnight"? Well, good news: She can't stay away.

Producers of the show said recently that the "American Idol" and Grammy Award winner will return in May to the musical celebrating Duke Ellington's years at the Cotton Club nightclub in Harlem. She will have a four-week stint, from May 13-June 8.

The musical's guest vocalist sings four songs "I Can't Give You Anything But Love," "Stormy Weather," "On the Sunny Side of the Street" and "Zaz Zuh Zaz" in front of a 17-piece band picked by Wynton Marsalis.

Barrino was the first vocalist, followed by k.d. lang. Grammy Award-winners Toni Braxton and Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds team up through March 30 until Vanessa Williams takes over April 1-May 11.
