Cookie, the artist? Possibly.
Taraji P. Henson, who plays the matriarch on the hit series "Empire," is musically gifted, according to one of her co-stars.
"She sings her (butt) off. People don't know that. She's so incredible. She has a beautiful voice," said Jussie Smollett, who plays Cookie's son, Jamal Lyon, on the show. "She's a trained theater actress, so she knows ... musical theater and all of that. She has a beautiful voice."
In a recent interview with The Associated Press, Smollett talks about working with Henson, Terrence Howard, Mariah Carey and more on "Empire," which airs at 9 p.m. EST Wednesdays on Fox.
