Actress Keke Palmer is on quite a roll of “firsts” these days. Not only is she be the youngest talk show host in TV history, but she was recently tapped to play the lead in the upcoming Broadway production of “Rogers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella.” Palmer is the first African-American actress to play the role on the Great White Way according to The Washington Post.

Can the 20-year-old belt out a tune?  Yes, she sure can! Palmer released an album back in 2007, “So Uncool,” which was followed by three mixtapes, the last one being two years ago. Palmer also appeared recently in the TLC’s TV biopic, “CrazySexyCool:  The TLC story.” In that film, she not only acted but danced and sang, further demonstrating her arsenal of talents.

Palmer is so thrilled about her historical theatrical coup that she tweeted about it Monday:
