It looks like Kelly Rowland is the mother of the Empire!
The songstress is set to guest star in season two of the FOX megahit — and she's definitely showing her maternal side!
The former Destiny's Child member will be playing Leah, the mother of Lucious Lyon AKA Terrence Howard!
Rowland will be featured in several flashback scenes in the season premiere of the hip-hop drama, seen (above) comforting her child who will later grow up to run Empire Entertainment!

Since it's a drama, we're sure that the Think Like A Man actress's scenes will shed a lot of light on Lucious' past and why he became the man he is today!
Rowland isn't the only star to appear on Empire's new season. Marisa Tomei, Chris Rock, Lenny Kravitz, and Mariah Carey are all set to guest star as well!
Check out Kelly on screen when Empire returns September 23 on Fox!
