Uzo, Uzo, Uzo. Just saying her name brings so much joy. Sure, she has an uncanny way with words. And, yeah, her beauty game is strong. But, now she's a singer? You betcha.

Okay, so the OITNB scene stealer isn't exactly diving headfirst into the music biz, but she is flexing those musical muscles. Her first role outside of her Emmy-winning turn as Crazy Eyes has her crooning gospel.

This week, the 2015 indie musical flick Pearly Gates honored its leading lady by releasing a free download of her song "Promise You." It's a toned down, acoustic track that sounds like something Jason Robert Brown would write for Tracy Chapman. Aduba sounds incredible, too.

Check out the song here. If you aren't on the Uzo Aduba bandwagon by now, this track will convince you to otherwise. Honestly, it's the one ride in Tinseltown worth staying on.
