Amara started her career at a young age, working with Univision’s Sabado Gigante. She has ended up working with different musicians such as Sean Paul, Trina, Mr Vegas etc and this has made her gain lots of traction throughout Latin America.
In an interview about working with Love & Hip Hop: Miami, she said, “I’ve been working on it for a while now. A lot of people on social media are like, ‘Ay pero, Amara’s not doing anything!’ And I’m like only if you knew, I’ve been recording every day. I just can’t, you know, publish any of it. But yes, it’s amazing that they noticed my hard work. They decided they wanted to have some Afro-Latino in Love & Hip Hop and bring some Latin flavor to the show. So, that’s where I come in.”
