Ever since hitting the scene via Love & Hip Hop Miami, Amara La Negra struck a chord with her breathtaking beauty and undeniable talent. But not before long, we discovered this Dominican beauty had an important mission that was more than skin deep. As a Latin entertainer, Amara has faced her fair share of criticism about her afro and dark skin tone. Through it all, Amara has managed to shut down the naysayers while uplifting others on her rise to the top.
Considering the positivity and self-love Amara represents, it’s no surprise that she’s racked up her own tribe of loyal fans in such a short amount of time. We collected a few of them to speak on camera about what they think makes Amara so special, and the responses were nothing short of amazing. “She’s a powerful, afro-Latina woman,” one of her fans told us. “She has the vision and courage to break through.”
What these lucky folks don’t know, however, is that this isn’t just a regular old interview. Amara has been listening quietly to all of their kind words and is here to put on one heck of a surprise. Watch her make the big reveal in the video above, and catch some big moments from tonight’s VH1 Trailblazer Honors on VH1.com
