Cop a gander of Kelly Rowland!

The R&B star is one of many names set to appear in the upcoming second season of ‘Empire’ – which returns to FOX on September 23rd.

34-year-old Rowland will play Leah, the mother of Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) in a series of flashbacks to the music mogul’s childhood. Peep a pic from her appearance in the season 2 premiere above.

Speaking on her role, the solo Grammy winner explained:

“Through watching Leah, we learn more about Lucious’s past.”

The married mother of one also gushed more broadly about her involvement in the Lee Daniels drama:

“I am an absolute fan of the show. It was the most exciting thing to work with all of these masterminds.” {Source}

2015 and beyond is shaping up to be busy times for the singer; her new BET talent search ‘Chasing Destiny’ is in production as is her hotly anticipated 5th studio album – a set she promises will boast a more “uptempo” sound.

      I love kelly but let’s be real since her music career has always been slept on she had to seek success somewhere else, bey is extremely talented with music she can’t have it all but I do agree she does need acting lessons but who are we to say she hasn’t been taking acting classes these last few years

    Too many cameos now. It would be better if there was some new up and coming or unknown talent

    Yes Kelly You better Kill it , I’ve been a fan since When love takes over I can’t wait for her new album, I really want to see her on tour

  12. Anne August 24, 2015

    Good for Kelly but bad for Empire. I think they should focus on getting seasoned actors and actresses instead of allowing all of these cameos for artists who just want to jump on the bandwagon for the latest craze. Kelly has no major acting experience and I doubt she could have competed against real acting talent for that role which it should have been based on.

    • Sarah August 24, 2015

      Look up Kelly’s acting catalogue hunny…Kelly has major acting credentials

  13. RihYonce August 24, 2015
