Keke Palmer is having a great 2014. Right after landing a gig as a talk show host on BET, “Just Keke,” she has now been tapped to be the first African-American to play Cinderella on Broadway.
The 20-year-old chocolate covered cutie Tweeted the news out to her followers:
“I’m sooooo excited to be doing broadway for the first time, as Cinderella!! DREAMS DO COME TRUE!!”
Palmer made her name starring in films like “Akeelah And The Bee” and on Nickelodeon’s “True Jackson VP.” Last year turned heads as “Chilli” in VH1’s TLC biopic. The Cinderella spot will be her first time on Broadway.
“Thinking about that [Broadway audience] gives me energy,” she tells Vanity Fair Hollywood. “Seeing that many people in the audience, who you can’t recognize, that’s what excites you and gets you pumped.”
We’ve been stalking her on Instagram for a few months and decided to share why we’d gladly be her Prince Charming.
