Remember The Music

Album: Empire: Original Soundtrack from Season 1 (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Jennifer Hudson performed this emotional ballad during the "Sins of the Father" episode of the Fox TV drama Empire. The song focuses on the power music can have. She told People, "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."
  • In the episode Hudson plays Michelle, a music therapist who forms a special bond with Trai Byers' character, Andre. "She brings a purity with her as an actress into the role of Michelle that connects with the purity of Andre," Byers told The Hollywood Reporter. "Her light shines onto his light, and her light combines with his light, and it showcases the Andre that he can potentially be in a way that steps away from the needs of Empire Entertainment."
