On Empire, Trai Byers plays Andre Lyon, the one Lyon son who chose business over singing. He’s constantly being pushed aside by his dad for not following the family’s musical footsteps, but it turns out he totally could if he wanted to — at least if the character has anywhere near the talent the actor has!
Trai and his co-star Bryshere “Yazz” Gray (Hakeem) recently stopped by Good Day DC, where Trai showed off his absolutely stunning singing voice, completely off the cuff and un-edited. Not kidding when I say you DO NOT want to miss this!!
Now that we see he can SANG ! Will Andre ever burst into song on the show? We did see mini-Andre singing along with his dad in a flashback, so it’s possible that he has some talent that he chose not to pursue. Plus, we know from the synopsis of Season 1, Episode 10 (“Sins of the Father”) that Andre forms a new musical relationship with Michelle (guest star Jennifer Hudson). That could just mean Andre convinces Michelle to sign with Empire, but could it also mean the two make some music together? It would certainly be an interesting twist.
