Amber Riley is pushing the music career- a smart move considering the trajectory of Glee- enlisting Emeli Sande and Claude Kelly to pen her a hit that will hopefully see her climb the charts and punch Billboard squarely in the throat.
Taking this new creation, the ballad Colorblind, to The Queen Latifah Show, the Diva gave a sterling, if understated, performance. Despite the track being amiable enough, it didn't quite scream "hit record". Something not Amber's fault; I think any singer would be fighting an uphill battle trying to get this slow burner to chart high.
Colourblind would have been more suited to an angsty Glee episode. But maybe that's the point: not to alienate the Diva's current market. Probably a smart move, all things considered. Wouldn't want scores of Gleeks offside....
[Note: Apparently the song IS going to appear in Glee, so that explains that.]
