Amara La Negra might be schooling TV viewers on what it means to be Afro-Latina, but the Dominican-American singer has been debunking the Latina myth long before her run-in with Young Hollywood on “Love & Hip Hop: Miami.”
Actually, the 27-year-old songstress has been commanding the stage as a proud Black woman for years.
Long before Amara was bringing the realness to “Love & Hip Hop: Miami” and signing deals, she a sweet, sassy muñeca stunning in beauty pageants.
She was working the runway better than any of the top models in the fashion industry.
Well Yea I guess I was Born in a “Black Face Body!” Its funny that I even have to go through this and show you baby pictures or videos to prove to blogs and people on social media that my skin color is not airbrushed or spray tanned nor do I take melanin shots to be black! This shit is hilarious ? however this is one of my favorite baby videos. I started when I was four years old doing beauty pageants, working on TV, commercials, etc. I have always been sassy & confident! Iv always been Naturally curvy Hips, Thighs, butt lol Thanks Mom/Dad lmao.. and Yess Thats My Hair! Back Then I used Braids… ( These days you gotta explain it all… Im Being Questioned every single part of my body ???)
Seriously, Gisele and Adriana could take a few lessons from baby Amara. Look at that strut!
The singer was also showing up the rest of the kids on Sábado Gigante.
Not Only Was I “BORN” with “Black Face” I Was also born with a “Black Body!” Lmao you guys be killing me! I was 6yrs here in one of the most important Latin networks #Univision #SabadoGigante In which I worked 6yrs every Saturday as one of there child stars. And ofcourse being the “ONLY!!!” Dark skinned girl i was always placed im the middle or in the back lol
Front and center from the start. Just where we like her. ????
This clip of a little Amara doing “La Macarena” seriously has me questioning my own dance moves.
Meanwhile I’m still trying to nail down a two-step salsa.
And here she is womaning up and telling Don Francisco what’s what.
Siempre Tengo a Mi Madre Presente! Tenia como 5 años Cuando Don Fransisco Me Pregunto "Si fuera Millionaria Que haria con el Dinero!?" Todos Hablaron de comprar jugetes, ropa entre otras Cosas.., y yo viendo los Trabajos y sacrificios que mi mama estaba pasando en ese entonces pues pense en ayudarla! @mamianalamama1 #SabadoGigante #DonFrancisco #AmaraLaNegra #ThrowbackThrusday
Even as a kid Amara was ready to make it big so she could take care of her mom. Cut to me this a.m. calling my mom to see if she’d make me breakfast. ?? ?? ??
Ultimate proof she was born to command the stage even at age 8.
Make way gente, she’s coming for you!
Amara La Negra, people! First of Her Name, Queen of Tumbao!
