The sky is blue.

The square root of 64 is 8.

That Grape Juice.net is the best website of all time.

For many, if not everyone, the statements above are simply facts of life.

Unfortunately, Dawn Richard seems to have been partial to a little fiction recently when she claimed that she didn’t understand why so many “black people” compare her vocal stylings to those of her R&B sibling Brandy.

Brandy Confirms ‘Empire’ Role At FOX Upfronts?

Brandy‘s career has been sitting on top of the world of late thanks to a number of major moves.

Indeed, the Vocal Bible has made headlines in recent months after signing on to star in the Broadway adaptation of ‘Chicago’ and for landing her own BET sitcom called ‘Zoe Moon.’

Now, it would appear a role on music drama ‘Empire’ is on the cards for the songstress (who is also working on a new album).

After teasing involvement in the Lee Daniels drama earlier this month, the singer all but confirmed her recruitment by joining the cast at the FOX Upfront presentation today.

The press event, which is held to tout the shows on the 2015-2016 schedules, is typically only attended by the talent on the programming being promoted. And per the snaps above and below, a roll-call of ‘Empire’s stars populated every pic B-Rocka featured in; stars such as Taraji P. Henson, Jussie Smollett, Jennifer Hudson, and Timbaland – who executive produces the music on the series.

Put simply, it’s highly unlikely Ms. Norwood was there for fun. Fingers crossed a formal  announcement is made soon.

Pending then, peep more pics after the jump…

The latter was particularly interesting, as the Grammy winner revealed that she’s been out to lunch with its creator Lee Daniels. Discussing a role maybe?
