Everyone knows Amber Riley can sing. You only have to see her as Mercedes on Glee to know that! The diva with the powerful pipes then proved she could dance, too. Thanks to her lively quickstep, Amber and partner Derek Hough won the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 17 of Dancing with the Stars.
It was a tough climb to the top, but the singer refused to take rejection for an answer. Failing to win a spot on American Idol only fueled her determination. "Being told no just made me work harder!"
Amber proves that Aquarians employ their strongest asset in everything they do: "I want to let women of all sizes know that you can do whatever, whatever, whatever you put your mind to."
