Keke Palmer to be Broadway’s 1st Black Cinderella
Yesterday it was announced that Keke Palmer, will be the first African-American Cinderella on Broadway in an adaptation of the Tony-winning musical this September. Keke is here to stay and on her way to becoming a house hold name. Our Girl! The actress/singer made television history earlier this year by becoming the youngest talk show host ever.
Like many women, Palmer has her share of childhood memories involving Cinderella—both the 1950 “animated version” and “the Brandy version,” that is, the 1997 TV movie starring the singer opposite Whitney Houston’s fairy godmother.
Keke tweeted the news and the internet lit up! It’s great to see young black girls following their dreams and inspiring others.
