A few weeks back we shared a snippet of Amber Riley singing a cover of Beyonce’s 1+1. Now the full version of that video has arrived and is sure to take your breath away.
For those unaware of Amber Riley, she starred as Mercedes Jones, the “larger than life” powerhouse singer on the hit Fox show Glee for 7 seasons. Her performance on the show brought her much acclaim, earning her a Screen Actors Guild Award and several nominations from the NAACP Awards and Teen Choice Awards. Her career continued to blossom and in 2016, she played the legendary role of “Addaperle” in the NBC live version of The Wiz. From there she would go on to play the role of “Effie White” in Dreamgirls, at the Savoy theatre in London’s West End. She recently won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical at the 2017 Olivier Awards for her role.
