"Empire" stars to appear at Oakland Mall this evening


Sad the first season of Fox's Empire has come to an end? Well, the mania over the new dramatic series isn't over yet. Two of the show's stars are set to appear at Oakland Mall this evening. 

Jussie Smollett and Yazz, who play brothers Jamal and Hakeem Lyon, will appear at the mall's center court at 6 p.m. this evening where they'll be signing copies of the Empire Season 1 Soundtrack.

In order to receive an autograph, fans must have purchased the soundtrack at Oakland Mall's FYE on March 10, which would have come with a wristband. 

There will be no posed photos with either of the show's stars. 

Oakland Mall is located at 412 W. 14 Mile Rd., Troy.
