Taraji P. Henson has made an indelible impression on pop culture since introducing us to her dynamic skill set in the classic film Baby Boy in 2001.

She continues to make boss moves in real life and on the screen as portrayed in the juggernaut weekly drama “Empire.” But the Academy Award-nominee (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Golden Globe winner (“Empire”) and Screen Actors Guild winner (Hidden Figures), took a respite from the rigors of being a Hollywood queen to celebrate her 49th birthday.

Henson hosted an 80s-style birthday bash at a skating rink and invited an A-list crew that included singing superstars Mary J. Blige and Jennifer Hudson, as well as beloved actress Tasha Smith (Why Did I Get Married?, Daddy’s Little Girls) and her soon-to-be husband, former NFL star Kelvin Hayden.
