Trai Byers and Jennifer Hudson at the piano in Empire Season 1Jennifer Hudson is lending her vocal chops to “Empire” Wednesday (March 11) and FOX has provided an advanced listen to one of the tracks the actress will be singing on the hit show. 

The track, titled “Remember The Music,” is an emotional power ballad that is definitely on par with the rest of the show’s impressive songbook. 
The Oscar-winner plays Michelle, a musical therapist, who forms a relationship with the most unmusical member of the Lyon family, Andre (Trai Byers). 
“‘Remember the Music’ truly exemplifies the power that music can have in all of our lives,” Hudson tells People about the track. “In my own life and my own art, I have always aimed to move past barriers and step outside my comfort zone as much as possible, and music has always been a tool that has allowed me to do so. This song really showcases the ability that music has in helping people to find strength and clarity.” 
Mary J. Blige also guest stars on the episode as a woman from Luscious Lyon’s (Terrence Howard) past. 
“Empire” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
