KeKe Palmer continues to strike while the fire is hot!

The 21-year-old actress has landed yet another role that will elevate her career; this time on Fox’s 2016 live broadcast of Grease. Joining stars Vanessa Hudgens as Rizzo and Julianne Hough as Sandy, KeKe Palmer will play the role of Marty, originally portrayed by Dinah Manoff in the film.

Starring in a musical should be second nature to the actress; this past winter, KeKe took Broadway as Cinderella, and previously played the part of Chilli in CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story. Her breakout role in Akeelah And The Bee launched her career full speed ahead, setting her up in the hit cable series True Jackson, VP, and movies Ice Age: Continental Drift, Joyful Noise, Brotherly Love, and Imperial Dreams.

Undoubtedly, KeKe Palmer is gifted, and her resume is stacked! Catch her on the live musical production of Grease, which will air on Fox on January 31, 2016.
