Megastar Actress, Singer, Dancer, Good Morning America Host & Author Delivers the Keynote Address Saturday at 1:00
Philanthropist and Talk Show host are just two of the titles the 25-year-old megastar, Keke Palmer, holds. With 15 years in the entertainment business, Keke's resume is quite impressive.
She began her career with a breakout role in the film “Akeelah and The Bee", and then starred as the title character in the hit cable series, “True Jackson, VP,” for which she received four NAACP Image Awards for Outstanding Performance in a Youth/Children’s Program.
Palmer has gone on to star in over 21 feature films and award-winning television shows, most recently the Emmy Award winning “Grease: Live” and “A Trip to Bountiful,” for which she earned an NAACP Image Award nomination for Outstanding Actress in a Television Movie, Mini-Series or Dramatic Special.
Palmer also made Broadway history as the first African-American and youngest actress to star in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s iconic 1957 musical, “Cinderella.” Her first book, "I Don't Belong To You " was released by Simon and Schuster.
Palmer was hand-picked by Ryan Murphy for her television role as ZayDay in Fox's Scream Queens. Oscar nominated producer, Lee Daniels also selected the young starlet to guest star in his hit television show STAR. What began as a one-episode turned into an eight-episode arch.
Palmer starred in Berlin Station, filming season 3 of the EPIX's hit show in Budapest, Hungary. She is set to star Lionsgate’s upcoming film, Two Minutes of Fame, alongside Kat Williams and Jay Pharaoh. Palmer’s most recent starring role was in the movie, Pimp, on which she was also an executive producer.
Keke also continues to prioritize philanthropic activism, something that started many years again when she was a child entertainer. She is the co- founder of Saving Our Cinderellas , a community outreach program where she inspires girls of many different cultures all across the country in the areas of music and the arts. Having come from an impoverished community herself , she understands the importance of providing children with hope that their dreams can come true as well. She has also volunteered with such organizations as The Boys & Girls Club, World of Money, and many more.
