Having starred in everything from Disney Channel movies to prestige cable dramas to her own talk show, Keke Palmer packed in a career's worth of projects ... all before her 25th birthday.
Keke Palmer's rise to the top wasn't without sacrifice. Her unmistakable talent led her entire family to relocate from Illinois to California to support her budding career.
On Fox's hot new show, Scream Queens, Keke plays ZayDay Williams. ZayDay is a super smart Kappa Kappa Tau pledge. She's only joining the sorority to supplement her already robust resumé. That's her current role, but where Keke started is even more interesting.
As the 11-year-old spelling whiz Akeelah, Palmer went toe-to-toe with seasoned talents Laurence Fishburne and Angela Bassett.
Millennials will surely remember her double-dutching up a storm in the Disney Channel original movie Jump In! alongside a High School Musical-era Corbin Bleu.
In True Jackson, VP, Palmer starred as a teen fashionista who lands a VP title at a major fashion label. In addition to becoming one of the highest-paid TV stars under 18, she wrote and sang the show's theme song.
Thanks to the magic of animation, she has played a young mammoth in the Ice Age franchise, a fairy from Nickelodeon's Winx Club, and a Quahog teen in a guest-starring role on Family Guy.
It also lights up the day, come to think of it.
Honoring one of the best groups in '90s hip-hop, Palmer portrayed Rozonda Thomas, aka Chilli, in the VH1 biopic, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story.
At the 2015 Teen Choice Awards, the red carpet was no match for her flawless style.
Palmer released her first album back in 2007 and has since put out several mixtapes, singles and covers. In addition to writing some of her own material, she shows off her dance skills in a number of YouTube videos.
As the host of Just Keke on BET, she became the youngest person ever to headline a talk show.
In Masters of Sex's second season, Palmer's nanny character, Coral, squared off against Libby Masters (Caitlin Fitzgerald), who felt threatened by Coral's rapport with her infant son.
Putting her singing, dancing and acting skills to great use, Palmer starred in Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella, becoming the first African-American actress to take on the role on Broadway.
Keke took a few moments to meet her elated supporters at the 2015 Essence Festival.
Keke's Scream Queens co-stars Lea Michele and Emma Roberts are just as talented and beautiful as Keke.
Staying in the Fox family, Palmer will appear in the upcoming Grease: Live as Marty Maraschino of the famed Pink Ladies. She'll be joined by Vanessa Hudgens as Rizzo and Julianne Hough as Sandy in the live telecast, set for January 2016.
The next project Keke has up her sleeve is anyone's guess, but one thing is for sure: She'll shine.
