One of Empire’s most strongest aspects, along with its talented ensemble, lies in the quality guest stars that take part in the show. Alicia Keys begins her recurring role on FOX’s Empire starting tonight as Sky Summers, a singer who collaborates with Jamal (Jussie Smollett) on the new song “Powerful.”

“(Sky) is an artist,” said Keys, whose previous acting credits include Smokin’ Aces and The Secret Life of Bees. “She is really looking to break out of the boxes that have started to close in on her as an artist. She’s fantastic. She’s really a lot of fun. I’ve had a great time putting her together (and) really creating a character for her. There’s very specific things we have talked about to make Sky come to life.”

Although she is not an avid TV watcher, Keys does get hooked on the occasional show, and she admits to being a huge fan of Empire. Click on media bar below to hear Alicia Keys talk about her love for Empire.
