Henderson's career has been exploding from his signing to Gill Hayes Talent Agency with auditions for television shows such as Empire and most recently, Chicago PD.

About "Black and White" Album:
"Black and White" was release in February 2016 and combines different elements that include love, pain, faith and God while embodying a sense of relevance amongst Henderson's age group. Stand out tracks include, "Please Don’t Leave Me" for its haunting aura that finds Henderson providing some of the album's best vocals, and a stellar production matching the emotion and tension of the vocals. "Fakin' It" is most likely to be a radio-ready song for its catchy melody and R&B influenced beat; making it a favorite throwback vibe to "Won’t Love Again" by Michael Jackson – guaranteed to be a fan favorite amongst Generation X! The last track on the album, "More to Life" is the most moving song due to its social relevance, tackling the highly publicized issues of violence and brutality. The album was produced and engineered by up and coming producer King Mxdus, childhood friend of Henderson, who produces multiple genres that include Hip Hop, R&B and Pop. "Black and White" is now available everywhere for stream or purchase.
