Glee star Amber Riley was beaming with pride after singing America's National Anthem at the 2012 Democratic National Convention on Tuesday (04Sep12).
The actress' parents were in the audience as she belted out the Star Spangled Banner at the rally in Charlotte, North Carolina.
She took to Twitter.com to post live updates and urge followers to cast their votes at the November (12) presidential elections, writing, "Singing the National Anthem for the opening of the Democratic Convention! Couldn't be more excited! Exercise your rights as citizens and vote! Vote! Vote!"
The highlight of the evening was an appearance by First Lady Michelle Obama, who gave a heartfelt speech backing her husband, U.S. President Barack Obama, for another term in the White House.
She won over a host of famous faces, with Riley writing, "My First Lady is first class all the way. That speech was inspiring. She is everything I aspire to be," and Cher echoing, "Just watched Michelle Obama speak & am completely overwhelmed! She was amazing! She is truly a 'First Lady'! A woman to admire & emulate!" while Jamie Foxx added, "Tears in my eyes... Michelle Obama, true angel.... God bless America."
Entourage star Adrian Grenier wrote, "We are so lucky to have a First Lady such as Michelle Obama, she inspires me; a nation's mom with solid value," while Dirty Dancing actress Jennifer Grey told fans, "I love Mrs. Obama!!! Michelle Obama wrote her own gorgeous speech," and singer Ricky Martin gushed, "Such a beautiful and powerful speech!!! Real! Honest! Emotional! Passionate! Thank you First Lady Michelle Obama."
Mia Farrow adds, "I knew tonight would be great but it was spectacular and unforgettable."

I don't know who edits/moderates for this site but they need to be fired. Why the hell is there a picture of Alex Newell on top of an article about Amber Riley. We live in a world where feigning ignorance about the racial implications of this act is inexcusable. I would rather this article wasn't written at all than to see this blatantly offensive picture on top of it. Fix it or take it down!

If your not able to do a proper photo research, then don't bother writting an article. It takes not much than 30 seconds to find a picture of Amber Riley ... I can't believe this mistake. Really incompetent.

I wish this is just a mix up because if your not able to do a proper photo research, then don't bother writting an article. It takes not much than 30 seconds to find a picture of Amber Riley ... I can't believe this mistake. You already have pictures of her with other article.

Are you a professional journalist? Amber Riley is a beautiful young woman and a talented singer. She was on national TV singing at the Democratic Convention. Please IMMEDIATELY get the correct photograph for this story. You should be fired for this type of mistake.
