"Idol" winner to open for Kem.

Fantasia will be part of her first major U.S. tour this summer.

The "American Idol" season three champ will open for Motown artist Kem beginning June 8 at the Fox Theatre in St. Louis, Mo.

Her three-week, 16-date run goes through July 1 at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta.

The title track from Fantasia's J Records debut album "Free Yourself" -- the project's third single -- was released to radio last week.

Fantasia will perform that track plus two other songs on ABC's "Good Morning America" live summer concert series on July 22.
