Taraji P. Henson may have over 20 years of acting experience under her belt, but it looks like she’s stepping into a new space.

Just recently, Henson sat down with the hosts of Good Morning America to discuss her upcoming EP.

She stated, “I’m just working on some really good, feel-good music. 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. Like, Miss Hannigan in ‘Annie,’ challenges me. That’s musical theater, taking me back to my roots. So it’s about just continuing to challenge myself.”

Adding, “I kept saying that music, I might have missed it because I became a mother so early on in college, but God has other plans for me because the music is just really falling in my lap. Like, it started with ‘The Muppets,’ and through ‘The Muppets,’ I booked Miss Hannigan, and it just keeps coming. So, I’m gon’ ride the wave. Why not?”
