What can’t Taraji do? This is the question most may be asking. She has starred in TV and movies. Taraji is one of the most talented actors in Hollywood.
Can Taraji Really Sing?
Of course, I will not be surprised if Taraji has a successful music career. Especially since Taraji has been very successful as an actor. One of the first acting gigs Taraji has was on the hit TV sitcom”Sister, Sister. Taraji only had a small role on the show. And, it was not a recurring role. Clearly, since then, Taraji has made an indelible as an entertainer. Therefore, it is not hard for me to see Taraji singing. She might even have a great set of pipes.
In fact, in one of her acting roles, Taraji played a singer (I Can Do Bad All By Myself). Not to mention, Taraji played “Cookie Lyons” in the hit series”Empire.” Taraji was the wife of Lucious Lyon (Terrance Howard). Both were the head of a successful music company. With that being said, Taraji announced during an interview on GMA(Good Morning America) she is embarking on a career in music. During the interview with host, Robin Roberts Taraji said she is actually working on an EP, as reported by Page Six. Taraji went on to say,
“I’m just working on some really good, feel-good music,” she added. “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.”
It is not uncommon for actors to both act and sing. Just look at the lives of her former co-star Tyrese. Tyrese and Taraji starred together in the cult classic movie “Baby Boy”. This movie was directed by the late great John Singleton. Both Tyrese and Taraji’s careers took off after portraying “Jody and Yvette.”
Also, during the interview with Roberts, Taraji admitted, she always loved music. When Taraji performed in “Muppets Haunted Mansion”, and ” Annie Live, her interested was “reinvigorated.” In addition, it has been a long-time dream of hers. So, we can now look forward to Taraji singing. I am sure Taraji will be successful as a music artist. What do you all think?
