Once speaking about DeOndra in a 2018 interview, the "Just Mercy" actor spoke beautifully about his inspirational sister as he noted that she helped give his life a perspective.

While the 11-year-old Annalise faced her piano lessons, Corrine became a part of history after winning a Creative Arts Emmy for being part of the "Good Times" reboot.
