 NEW YORK  (July 20, 2009) — Singer-Actress Keke Palmer celebrates several major career achievements in July — just weeks ahead of her 16th birthday — including signing a recording deal with INTERSCOPE RECORDS, the launch of her True Jackson fashion Line, airing of Nickelodeon’s True Jackson movie and the national release of her latest feature film — SHRINK, opposite Kevin Spacey.

Palmer, whose acting honors include SAG Award best supporting actress nom, ranked 8th in Forbes’ latest list of Hollywood‘s Most Valuable Young Stars.” While her movie roles — including Akeelah and the Bee — have gained her widespread attention, Palmer’s recording career is also taking off.

Interscope Records signed Palmer to a new multi-album recording contract, which her next CD to drop in 2010. She has already been in the studio writing and recording with top-industry producers. Her summer dance song — Super Jerkin — is gaining radio airplay across the United States.  Her voice and style were showcased at this month’s BET Awards when Keke delivered an impromptu rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Who’s Loving You.”

The success of Palmer’s TV series TRUE JACKSON: VP — which was picked up for a second season by Nickelodeon — led to the July launch of a “tween” fashion line MAD STYLEby True Jackson.”  The clothes hit Wal-Mart stores in time for back-to-school shopping. Nickelodeon debuts “Testing True” — a True Jackson movie — Saturday, July 25.  Palmer plays True Jackson, a teen aged vice president of a fashion house.

Palmer’s big screen career continues to impress with the national release of SHRINK,a drama in which she co-stars with Kevin Spacey.  Keke’s character is a troubled teen who wanders into the already chaotic life of a Hollywood Psychiatrist, played by Spacey.  The film opens in New York and Los Angeles theaters on July 24, with wider distribution to follow. 

Palmer will soon add another title to her resume — producer.  She and her parents had been working with writer Adam Davenport for several years to adapt his book OREO into a movie.  It’s the story of a teen who holds her divorced parents accountable for the confusion in her life.
