The Cheetah Girls consisted of four aspiring female singers:

She writes songs and sets the rehearsals.
- Chanel (Adrienne Bailon), who speaks English and Spanish (her roots
are Cuban, Puerto Rican and Dominican).
- Aquanette Walker (Kiely Williams), an African-American teen with a
love of fashion
- Dorinda Thomas (Sabrina Bryan), the romantic of the group who was
raised in a foster home.
With the help and encouragement of Galleria's mom, Dorothea (Lynn

big time. The girls even travel to Barcelona Spain to compete in the "New
Voices of Music Festival." to showcase their talents.
