Yo. Half the Empire was born from Kelly Rowland.
The erstwhile Child of Destiny has been tapped to play Lucious Lyon’s mother on the hit TV show this fall. Obviously, Rowland will be seen via flashback, since she is hella younger than Terrence Howard, her on-screen son.
Too bad Gladys Knight already guested as herself. If the powers that be needed to show mama Lyon in the present they could cast her ’cause Rowland looks quite a bit like the legendary singer, IMHO.
