Appearances & Events
Kelly has been on heavy promotion this weekend at the Essence Music Festival. She did a little recruiting for her upcoming BET show, Chasing Destiny, alongside friends Trey Songz and Frank Gatson.
It was also reported that Kelly will be returning to FOX’s Empire. Returning? you ask… well if you recall, Kelly’s vocals were used on season 1, when her song, “I’m Dat Chick” from her album, “Here I Am“, was played in an episode. Well this go round, Kelly is reportedly going to appear in person!
Kelly Rowland will appear on the hit FOX show this fall, a source told E! News exclusively on Saturday, the Fourth of July, at the 2015 Essence Festival in New Orleans. The 34-year-old R&B singer will play Lucious Lyon’s mother in a flashback. SOURCE
Shortly after, she was spotted hanging out with the writers of Empire. Hmm…working on that script Kelly?

And then there is the Independence Day party, 17 Wards Weekend Wine & Grind! Kelly was spotted at a party, where Solange Knowles was the DJ. She was spotted next to musicians Missy Elliott, Tweet, and Beyonce. Check out photos from Kelly’s weekend in our gallery.
Thats what is being said, and truth be told, it’s not that far fetched. Since we have been on hiatus, Kelly inked a deal with BET and announced it earlier this year (April), that she will be launching a new TV series entitled, “Chasing Destiny“.
“Chasing Destiny” will follow a search for the hottest and most talented up-and-coming singer that will bring together young women with all that’s required to meet Kelly Rowland’s standards for excellence.
“In the series, these singing hopefuls will vie their way to stardom with recording mogul Rowland helping them to find their voice as entertainers,” the network said
With that being said, why wouldn’t BET’s newest diva make an appearance? In the meantime, check out photos from the Upfronts (Chicago, New York City), and the picture of Kelly that BET has been sending out for BET Awards promotion, which is from Kelly’s 2010 “I Heart My Girlfriends” Photoshoot.
