Happy New Year! We are excited to be back this year with new blog posts on beautiful young people following their crafts and being successful. This week’s Expectation Breaker of the Week is the one and only Lauren “Keke” Palmer. I know many of you guys probably already know or heard of this young lady, but we are here to tell you guys why she is unlike any other person in the world.
With the ambition of a fortune 500 corporate CEO, the heart of three lionesses, and the talent that cannot be compared to by any one in her field, Keke Palmer is a success story in the making. The success that she conveys on screen and off screen is not just all the millions she’s collected in the last decade and plus years. Her success story dates as far back when she was only ten years old after meeting with a casting director in Los Angeles, and was told that she was just another black girl that could sing and act. Twelve years later she’s turned those pretentious words into corpses and buried them into the dirt. She is a Expectation Breaker because she has had one of the most successful track records, from a child star to an adult superstar, in the entertainment business thus far.
As a young child actress on Disney Channel, to having her own show on Nickeloden, to playing in one of Tyler Perry’s first successful big screen movies; Madea’s Family Reunion, and many other show appearances such as “Law and Order SVU”, and “Degrassi”, just to name a few, Keke Palmer has done alot. It wasn’t until she was eleven years old when she played Akeelah in Akeelah and the Bee when she got her big break as a notable young actress in the industry. Keke Palmer is an extraordinary actress, but she is also a heart-wrenching singer.
At the age of twelve, Keke signed her first recording contract, and has delivered hit songs such as “Keep it Movin'”, “Work Like You love Me”, and recently “I Don’t Belong to You”. She is truly growing into her own as an entertainer and a young woman. In 2014, she was casted in Cinderella on Broadway in New York City, the first to do so as a young black woman. In the same year she hosted her first talk show on BET called “Just Keke”, another first for a young black woman. In 2015, she plays Zayday on a notorious show on FOX called “Scream Queens”. A role with so much personality, which helps bring in many viewers. Today, she is rehearsing for Grease Live, a phenomenal opportunity to expand her onstage acting, among many other blessings to come.
Keke continues to shock the world, her fans, her family, and many naysayers from the past and the present that limit her ability to shine in any and everything she does. To us, she is more than an actress, a singer, or an over-all entertainer. She is a role model, and a paragon of beauty. She is someone who lives her life to the fullest, and she does so with so much grace. Thanks Keke Palmer for showing the world and yourself that it is okay, and it is possible to follow your dreams and make them into reality!
