Cookie Lyon will be back in our lives before we know it. Empire’s leading lady manages the career of her talented son, Jamal Lyon (Jussie Smollett). Jamal’s singing talents are out of this world and Cookie is the only person with the expertise to make them better.
While she’s one of the most respected musical talents on the show, you’re most likely wondering if the talented actress can hold a not in real life. Some forget that she sang in the film, I Can Do Bad All By Myself.
The Washington, D.C. native also showed off her voice on her and Terrence Howard’s White Hot HolidaysChristmas special. Who can forget when the actress sang alongside Mary J. Blige on Lip Sync Battle. Her voice was Just Fine and we want more!
The answer is yes, Taraji P. Henson can sing. We hope the writers allow her to show off her voice on the show. Another actor who can sing who hasn’t been given the opportunity to do so is Trai Byers aka Andre Lyon.
The actor did a magnificent job portraying his character throughout the show’s first two season and we think he can add even more. Cookie and Andre should find their voices in the show’s third season.
The show has received numerous awards thanks to its record-breaking first season. Fans of the show are hoping that Season 3 will include all the guest stars we’ve been waiting for.
Taraji P. Henson will always be Yvette and Tyrese Gibson will always be Jody thanks to their unforgettable performances in the 2001 film, Baby Boy. We begged for a Baby Boy 2 but we guess Tyrese making a guest appearance on Empire will have to do.
MadameNoire explains that the singer had been dropping hints, via social media, that he was interest in joining #TeamEmpire months before producer Lee Daniels granted his wish. Will Jody make an appearance on the show’s third season!?
According to Hollywood Reporter, the show is so big that Lucious Lyon wouldn’t have been able to dream it up. If there’s one woman that understands that level of success it’s Oprah Winfrey. Daniels revealed that she would make an appearance on the show’s second season but later explained that she was too busy.
The producer explains that Winfrey will make an appearance in the show’s third season and we can’t wait! Cookie vs. Oprah!?
