Sonya Eskridge is a writer from Maryland, who started her news career in radio at the age of 17. After graduating from Virginia Tech, she went on to write for a national publication where she was able to mold her personal voice. Always looking for ways to inform on important issues--or share her love of nerdy and girly things—Sonya thoroughly enjoys writing about a wide range of subjects.
Jennifer Hudson thinks that her upcoming appearance on “Empire” will give the audience a new perspective on how music can heal people. When she steps onto the screen to play a music therapist that has been charged with treating Andre, she’ll be belting out a tune called “Remember The Music” that she hopes will get others to understand how much music can strengthen the spirit.
“’Remember the Music’ truly exemplifies the power that music can have in all of our lives. 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,” she told People magazine. “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.”
