Jussie Smollett - Good Enough (Empire)

The US drama "Empire" just started airing here in Sweden and I instantly fell in love the "Dynasty"-ish soap storylines and the incredibly talented Jussie Smollett. He plays the gay character Jamal Lyon who is trying to show his homophobic father that he is "good enough".

Check out the performance of his beautiful song "Good Enough" down below. It's very moving. The song is available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon UK and Amazon US. I look forward to following "Empire" and hearing more from the talented Mr. Smollett.

Rest in peace, Christopher Lee

I just heard the sad news about Christopher Lee's death. The British actor was ninety-three years old and known to many for his roles in the "Lord Of The Rings" movies.

To me, Christopher will always be remembered as Dracula in the Hammer Films horror classics, and as Bond villain Scaramanga in "The Man With The Golden Gun". Last but not least, I loved his cameo in "Gremlins 2: The New Batch".

The world has lost yet another talented star. Rest in peace, Christopher.
