Amber Lee Ettinger
Though she’s also a professional model, dancer, and singer, Amber Lee Ettinger is best known as the seductive, politically-linked actress, who plays “Obama Girl” in the light-hearted campaign videos that have been viewed by millions worldwide and recently earned her a Webby nomination for Best Viral Video of The Year.
It all began last summer with “I’ve Got a Crush on Obama,” the first in a series that has been applauded by the likes of People Magazine, The Associated Press, Newsweek, and AOL, and touted as the Internet’s “Video of the Year” by many others. Amber Lee, a.k.a. the “Obama Girl” continues to appear in numerous articles and lists that highlight the Internet’s hottest and most popular stars, including a nod from MSN as one of the “11 Most Influential Women of 2007,” and a #1 ranking from E! Entertainment Television as “The Hottest Woman on The Web.”
Today, Amber is more specifically channeling her energy and attention into her singing career with the release of “Second Time,” her debut single on Silver Curve Records—a natural evolution given her lifetime spent in the performing arts. The first single is an original dance/pop song was produced by Sky Hardasmal, Tommy J. Baldwin, and Jonny Roszak, leading up to the release her first full-length studio album, aptly entitled “Queen of The Web,” to be released on November 2nd, 2008.
With a desire to separate Amber, “the singer”, from her character, “Obama Girl,” Amber is looking forward to sharing her own distinctive pop and R&B sensibilities with devoted fans and new audiences alike. Amber is planning to hit the nightclub circuit first while she finalizes material for the album before embarking on an international tour that will include a multitude of appearances.
With several media hits on shows like Saturday Night Live, Access Hollywood, Inside Edition and Geraldo At Large under her belt, not to mention the many presidential debates, rallies, and even the White House Correspondents’ Dinner she’s attended, Amber is not only eager, but well-prepared for the exciting journey ahead.
