They're fierce, they're fearless, and they have some serious pipes. These four power females are known as The Cheetah Girls! And they are here to show us what it means to be a strong, individual woman.
I absolutely loved this tight-knit group that stuck together, no matter what obstacles stood in their way. This film taught me how to be a confident girl, a good friend, as well as the proper way to wear cheetah print with every outfit.
In case you need a refresher on what these girls can do, check out the song "Cinderella" from the Disney film The Cheetah Girls:
Wondering what these phenomenally beautiful and talented girls are up to nowadays? We have the answers!

Adrienne Bailon (Chanel Simmons, A.K.A Chuchie)
Following: Coach Carter, The Cheetah Girls 2, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2, The Cheetah Girls: One World, That's So Raven, and The Suite Life of Zach and Cody among a list including many more.
Fun Fact: Bailon was actually first discovered by none other than Ricky Martin in 1999. Martin approached her church choir at Madison Square Garden and asked for the four best singers in the group. Bailon was one of the four selected by Martin to perform as backup singers as part of his Livin' la Vida Loca Tour concert show that same night.
Sabrina Bryan (Dorinda Thomas, A.K.A Do)
Following: Help Me, Help You, The Cheetah Girls 2, The Cheetah Girls: One World, Grounded For Life, The Bold and the Beautiful, The Suite Life of Zach and Cody, and Fish Hooks, just to name a few.

Fun Fact: In 2010, Williams released a song called "Spectacular" that shocked and angered many Cheetah Girls fans, as the content was racy and intended for a mature audience. Williams defended the song by explaining that she was no longer a 15-year-old little girl.
It appears as if most Disney stars want to break away from their squeaky-clean images, and Williams isn't any different.
Lynn Whitfield (Dorothea Garibaldi)

Fun Fact: Her father, Valerian Smith, may have been a dentist, but Whitfield credits him as the reason she even became an actress. He helped form a community theater in her native Baton Rouge, which helped spark an interest in the craft of acting.
Vince Corazza (Jackal Johnson)
Following: Without a Trace, 24, JAG, The Punisher, NYPD Blue, Lie to Me, The Young and the Restless, Entourage, Nightcomer, and Bones just to mention a few.

So get those paws out, let out a loud roar, and be that powerful person you are meant to be. Thanks to this group of bold woman, I know that I can accomplish anything I want.
Plus, I can't stop decorating my apartment with cheetah print. Cheetah print blanket, scissors, and oven mitts are a staple in any home.
