Tamron Hall has teamed up with Fantasia for “Shine,” the opening track of the TV host’s self-titled daytime talk show, which premieres Sept. 9.
“Fantasia in a word is everything — she has been an inspiration and a friend to me for many years,” Hall said in a statement. “Her story, her life and her presence shake me to my core — from the first time I saw her on ‘American Idol’ to the time I saw her perform and move the crowd at The Apollo. I knew I wanted to partner with her in some way.”
The track was written and composed by Eve Nelson, Raymond Cervenka and Caitlin Rosenquist, and features Fantasia singing the inspirational lyrics: “shine for the rest of your life/stronger than ever, ever.”
“It was a pleasure and honor to record ‘Shine’ – the theme song for Tamron Hall’s new daytime show,” Fantasia added. “I’ve been a fan of hers for many years as she represents all women out there who are strong, smart, hardworking and resilient.”

Tamron Hall is executive produced by Bill Geddie and Hall, and distributed by Disney.
