Taraji P. Henson is selling her 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom condo in Chicago’s Streetville neighborhood. The Empire star listed the property for $1.525 million. She bought the property after she started spending more time in the city, thanks to her role as Cookie Lyon on Empire.
Rest assured Empire fans. This doesn’t mean Cookie is leaving the series. In a recent interview she made it clear that she’ll be on Empire for a very long time.
Taraji P. Henson’s new movie, Acrimony is a thriller film scheduled to be released on March 30, 2018. Tyler Perry wrote, produced and directed the movie meaning it will be a classic. When Taraji and Tyler team up they always create masterpieces.
Who can forget Taraji and Tyler’s 2009 movie, I Can Do Bad All By Myself!? Taraji’s role in both films is similar: Powerful woman who defeats the odds, much like Taraji did in real life.
The father of Henson’s son abused her leading her to raise her son as a single parent. Taraji didn’t play victim instead she used the incident as inspiration, moved to Los Angeles and became a star.
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.
