"I can't believe how incredible of an artist @jurneebell is and how proud I am of her. I hope that right after everyone watches #Empire at 9/8c on Fox, you head over at 10/9c to #WGNAmerica and catch my baby sis and the entire brilliant cast and crew blow your minds. Don't say I didn't tell y'all," the 32-year-old wrote alongside the dramatic post, which shows a side-profile view of Jussie standing next to his sister.
