Jussie Smollett
Jussie Smollett, known for his groundbreaking role as tortured pop star, Jamal Lyon in the mega-hit television series Empire, is now emerging beyond what many call one of the most powerful characters on television. Yes, the show is a pop culture phenomenon, smashing records and is quite symbiotic for Jussie Smollett, but his arrival at this pivotal moment with the release of his album SUM OF MY MUSIC on March 2, 2018, is the culmination of years of perseverance that started for him quite literally at the age of four and has delivered him to the present as a singer, songwriter, actor, director, performer and activist.

To some it may seem like Smollett popped on the scene just a few years ago as the middle Lyon son, a role in which he won Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series at the 2017 NAACP Images Awards, but Jussie has co-starred in some of the most memorable projects of his generation. From The Mighty Ducks and Rob Reiner’s North, to playing the son of Halle Berry and Danny Glover in Alex Haley’s Queen to starring opposite his five real-life siblings in the ABC/TGIF sitcom On Our Own, he’s never been far removed from the spotlight.

He stunned audiences with his portrayal of Josey, a runaway slave, desperate to find his wife, in WGN’s Underground. In 2012, Smollett received rave reviews for this portrayal of, Magnus, a medical student hosting his college friends for an eye-opening New York City weekend in the cult favorite, The Skinny. Most recently co-starting as Sergeant Ricks in Ridley Scott’s number one box office hit, Alien: Covenant; and his cameo as legendary poet and childhood hero, Langston Hughes, in Reginald Hudlin’s Marshall with Black Partner start Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad and Kate Hudson.
