Our Special Guest – Amara La Negra Singer, Author, and Host of the New Show “Don’t Cancel Me” on Fuse!

Amara La Negra is the embodiment of today’s woman, created with a hint of the past and a twist of tomorrow. Self-described as eccentric, vibrant, and ambitious, Amara draws inspiration from music legends Celia Cruz and Beyoncé. The break-out star of this season’s Love & Hip Hop: Miami, Amara is a Dominican-American entrepreneur, recording artist, dancer, spokesperson, philanthropist, model, and actor who sheds light on the challenges of navigating the entertainment industry as an Afro-Latina.

Born in Miami as Diana Danelys De los Santos, Amara grew up singing, dancing, and acting. At 4, she won a competition that landed her on the wildly-successful Hispanic variety show, Sábado Gigante. It was on the show where she was first exposed to what would turn out to be lifelong scrutiny of her blackness. After years of straightening perms, hot combs, and dieting Amara decided she was done policing her body. So she took the stage name Amara La Negra, “love the black woman,” and embraced her afro.
