Keke Palmer grew up in the South Suburbs
and enjoying her success
Val Warner of Windy City Live Chicago, interviewed Keke Palmer from GMA 3 in New York. What caught my eye was Keke’s announcement of growing up in Robbins, IL. Born August 26, 1993 in Harvey, IL as Lauren Keyana Palmer, at age five she wowed the audience in a church in Robbins. The family moved on so that Keke could follow her dream in California. It was there in California when Keke received many opportunities to be in movies, television, and commercials.
On ABC GMA3, there are three co-hosts and I was happy to see Keke Palmer with Strayhan, Sara. Keke said she first became
friends with Sara on The View, and if she were to want to interview someone, her special person is Oueen Latifah. Keke stated, “she met Oueen Latifah, who was her favorite singer, when she was growing up. When I was in Barbershop 2: Back in Business at age 10, my Aunt was played by Queen Latifah and she was so helpful and caring.” Later Keke went on to do Television, which were the TV greats of ER, Cold Case, Law and Order and when she was nine years old, she stared opposite William H. Macy, in the made for TV movie, The Wool Cap. Keke Palmer, at age 9, received a nomination as a performer in The Wool Cap which earned her a nominee for the Screen Actor Guild’s best leading actress honor. A honor that was the first to be offered to the youngest actor in the business.
Being not only super talented, but living in California, she went on to work in the film, Akealah and the Bee (2006), this film earned Keke Palmer The opportunity to make her first soundtrack and also featured Palmer’s first recording “All My Girlz”. The song let Atlantic Records bring Palmer into the studio for more recording time. Keke’s first album SO COOL, is a mix of R&B tracks which was released in 2007. Keke has a full acting career since 2007, with her versatility as actress
and singer she is worth about 7 million.
As of November 11, which I heard on Strayhan, Sara, and Keke show, Keke just signed up for GMA 4 season.
