It all started at the TLA

In the video at the end of this article, Mayberry explains that Bryshere’s journey started at the Theater of the Living Arts, Philadelphia’s premiere venue for small concerts.  On Empire, Bryshere plays Hakeem Lyon, the son of music mogul, Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) and the infamous Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson).

Cookie and Lucious made sacrifices and now run one of the most powerful record labels in the world.  Unlike Bryshere, Hakeem was born into fame.  Bryshere and his younger sister, Brianna grew up in poverty in one of the most dangerous cities in the world.


Bryshere’s mom still works full-time

In the video below, Bryshere explains that he’s saving his Empire checks to buy his mother a house.  Bryshere is a famous actor on Fox’s most popular show but his mother still works, full-time, as a nurse.  It’s easy to see why Bryshere works so hard.  We tend to become like those whom we admire.  Children are great imitators and Andria provided admirable characteristics for Bryshere to imitate.

Mya Kay Douglas releases three books on April 4, 2017

Like Andria Mayberry, author, Mya Kay Douglas is from Philadelphia.  Her Bryshere Y. Gray book isn’t the only project she’s been working on.  On April 4, 2017 the best-selling author will make history by releasing three books on the same day.  In addition to Before Empire: Raising Bryshere “Yazz The Greatest” Gray, Douglas will release The Clover Chronicles: Battling Brelyn and S.E.A.L.: Sex, Entertainment and Lies.
