Taraji P. Henson set to launch music career with ‘feel-good’ EP

Actress Taraji P. Henson is giving the music biz a go with a new “feel-good” EP, the Hidden Figures star revealed Friday, according to Page Six.

“I actually have an EP that I’m working on. Surprise!” she shared on “Good Morning America.”

“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.”

Henson, 51, went on to reveal that while she always loved music, becoming a young mother steered her away from that career path. Recent musical gigs such as “Muppets Haunted Mansion” and playing Miss Hannigan in NBC’s “Annie Live!” reinvigorated her passion, leading her to finally pursue her longtime dream.
