2015 isn’t over with yet but to me 2015 is the year of Jussie Smollett.
This has been quite a year for the actor/singer. I really didn’t know about Jussie until Empire premiered on Fox this year. I’ve been following his sister Jurnee’s career since she starred in Eve’s Bayou.
Yes Taraji is the star of Empire but in my eyes Jussie is the breakout star. You can’t help but fall in love with Jussie by watching him on Empire and hearing him sing. I’ve pretty much downloaded all the songs he sings on Empire including the songs that didn’t make it on the soundtrack and I even have a Jussie Smollett playlist on my ipod. Yeah I’m hooked. He’s supposed to be working on a solo cd and I’m looking forward to it.
Jussie has been in demand with a lot of people. A few months ago he was flying all over the country promoting the Empire cd. He’s also been appearing at different functions including the UNCF in Atlanta and the 10th Annual National Capital ‘A Cinderella Ball. Jussie will be performing on Tv One’s Verses and Flow this summer.
Not only is he an actor/singer but he’s also an activist. He recently participated in the March2Justice in Washington, D.C.
Right now you can see Jussie in Mariah Carey’s new video Infinity. He looks so handsome/nerdy in this video.
Jussie has gone from this:
I’m so happy that 2015 has been a great year for Jussie and I’m looking forward to seeing and hearing more from him in the future.
I will end this post with one of my favorite Jussie Smollett songs I Wanna Love You.
