We already know Gabrielle Union is an incredible actress, advocate and television personality. But what we didn’t know is that the former America’s Got Talent judge can also rap. Take a look at the video down below to see her secret skills that she whowed off during the Emmy Awards.
Gabrielle Union Shockingly Raps As Dwayne Wade Watches
Gabrielle captioned the video with “Rap career launched. Your welcome. It’s no secret we are huge @insecurehbo fans so this was hella fun to do. Always winners in our house and in our hearts. Here’s our bit in full. Love yall.” This was a nod to the show Insecure which did not win any of the major Emmy Awards it was nominated for this year at the Emmy Awards. The show was created by and stars Issa Rae and has a predominantly black cast. Gabrielle has long been a fan of the show and Issa as it celebrates black culture. Gabrielle was included in a segment featuring celebrities ahead of the Emmy Awards and she made her love for the show known. She wore a shower cap and a bathrobe as she rapped about the show and the fact that it shows “the boys’ booties.”
Her husband Dwayne Wade approached from the background not impressed with the lyric about nudity. But we know secretly Dwayne was cheering his wife on as she lit up everyone’s television screens with her hidden talent. It was one of the coolest moments of the night.
