Things keep going right for Glee star Amber Riley (Mercedes)! Not only has the recent Dancing With the Stars winner been killing it on Glee and in her solo singing career, but she now is about to collect a prestigious award.

Amber will receive the GirlPower Children's Inspiration Award at a ceremony on May 22 in Beverly Hills. The tagline for the awards ceremony is, "Honoring the women who inspire us." Amber definitely fits that description!

This is an exciting time for Amber. She has been back for numerous Glee episodes lately in Season 5, and last week, she got to perform an original song, "Colorblind," which is from her soon-to-be-released debut solo album. On top of that, she took home the mirror ball as the best hoofer on DWTS Season 18 last fall, and the clothing boutique she recently started with her sister is a big success. 

We're loving Amber's involvement on Glee lately. It's awesome that Samcedes is actually becoming a legitimate couple for once, and it's also great that Mercedes is having so much success in her recording career. It's art imitating life!

Offer your congratulations to Amber in the comments section!
