Glee’s Amber Riley Performs Debut Single ‘Colorblind’ On ‘The Queen Latifah Show’

Penned By Emeli Sande & Claude Kelly

amber riley glee colorblind Glees Amber Riley Performs Debut Single Colorblind On The Queen Latifah Show

With Glee’s final season nigh, the show’s most powerful voice Amber Riley is stepping out solo.

The singer-actress, who plays Mercedes on the FOX hit, selected The Queen Latifah Show as the stage to debut her brand new single ‘Colorblind’ on.

Written by hitmakers Claude Kelly and Emeli Sande, the haunting cut sees Riley serve up vocal fireworks aplenty.

Is it a hit, though? You be the judge after the jump…

We like. Although, we’re hoping she embraces a sound that allows the power of her voice to be paired with hooks and melodies that are more radio-ready. Think Jennifer Hudson’s ‘Spotlight’.

In any case, as longtime appreciators of Amber’s talent, we’re eager to see how her musical journey plays out.

Your thoughts?

    Spotlight was Jennifer Hudson’s biggest and only hit outside of dreamgirls

    Beautiful vocals and song. All it needs is a huge platform and pop radio will eat it up like All Of Me. Amber is a vocal beast

    I love her voice so much but I just wonder how much she’ll sell. We can say sales don’t matter but they kinda do if she wants to have a professional career.

    Yes, she sounded good. She is the best singer off of glee, her Whitney Houston I Will Always love you cover was everything, But this song is an album filler not single material.

    I love Amber Riley and glad she’s back on Glee full time. This song is fine but not the strongest introduction to the world as a premiere performer.

    I love Ambers voice but I’m not sold on the song. Although i have to say that that it slays every song on Lea Michelle’s boring ass album

    I’m sure Amber will have more songs to come out. That will have you sold. She is without a doubt the best singer on that show

    She's a real singer and vocalist. Replied:

    What’s boring is those same old ”pop” songs. That’s boring! This is Amber first official single. Sure she has more upbeat songs to come.

    It’s a beautiful song, with a great idea behind it. Emeli Sande is an amazing artist/writer. What she writes isn’t for everyone, but Half of Me and this song compliment the artist well. I wish the best for amber, she’s got a very pure voice.

    In the day of Whitney’s “Didn’t We Almost Have It All”, ballads like this were regularly sent to radio. Just because the landscape has changed over the years doesn’t mean Amber’s song isn’t single worthy. It’s time for music listeners and radio to open up again and not limit everything to pop-rock, rap and hip-hop.
