Keke Palmer Makes History as First Black Cinderella on Broadway

It was named the biggest concert of the summer. Jay-Z and Beyonce will wrap up their "On the Run" tour tonight in San Francisco after 19 shows. Ticket sales were off to a rocky start at first because fans said they were too expensive, but the tour pulled through. According to the show's producer and promoter, the couple will gross more than $100 million dollars in ticket sales.

A Miami judge postponed a hearing to determine whether Justin Bieber will be tried on charges of driving under the influence and resisting arrest. The pop star was arrested back in January. Police say he was drag racing. Lawyers are due back in court next week.

If you enjoyed "Remember the Titans" or "We Are Marshall," here's another film to add to your must see list. Jim Cavieziel plays real-life coach Bob Ladouceur who guided Concord, California's high school football team to an record-shattering 151 game winning streak. "When the Game Stands Tall" follows the team through the end of the streak when their coach has to help the young men, and their town, get back on their feet. "When the Game Stands Tall" hits theaters August 22nd.

She's come a long way from "Akeelah and the Bee" which was released back in 2006. Now Keke Palmer is making headlines for becoming Broadway's first black Cinderella. The 20 year old will be performing in eight shows a week in Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella. Keke says she's beyond excited about her new role and dreams do come true. The former Nickelodeon star recently made history by being the youngest talk show host ever on TV. She currently hosts her show "Just Keke" on BET, appealing to the younger audience. Keke steps into her role as Cinderella on Broadway September 9th.
