Taraji P. Henson’s Announcement
“I actually have an EP that I’m working on. Surprise!” Taraji announces.
In the segment, she talks about how she is looking to be challenged and to expand her craft outside of acting.
“I’m just working on some really good, feel-good music.”
“I’m not trying to toot my own horn here, but it was time for a pivot because I’ve done so many iconic roles, you know what I mean? It’s like, I can’t just, you know…acting it has to be something that excites me and challenges me.”
This isn’t a huge surprise being Taraji’s angel-like voice and the fact she had always wanted to become a singer.
The actress talks about her reconnection with music.
“Miss Hannigan in ‘Annie’ challenges me,” she shares.
“That’s musical theater, taking me back to my roots. So it’s about just continuing to challenge myself … I kept saying that music, I might have missed it because I became a mother so early on in college, but God has other plans for me because the music is just really falling in my lap.”
We can expect to hear her tunes soon, cannot wait to see what she has in store for us.
