Diana then asks Jamal if he has any plans on the day of the fundraiser.  While Diana would love for Jamal to perform at the event, he's still trying to deal with his PTSD from Freda Gatz shooting him.  Jamal is still working with Philip (Juan Antonio) to overcome his PTSD.

Helen doesn't give Jamal a chance to answer, instead she compliments Diana for her marvelous idea.  Helen is the founder of her own fashion label.  In episode 8 of the show's third season, "The Unkindest Cut" Helen partners with Empire for her fashion show.  Andre ruins Tiana's performance at the event.
