That Keke Palmer reign just won’t let up. The singer and actress will be the latest recipient of the National Association of Broadcasters 2016 Chairman’s Award which honors “Individuals for Significant Breakthrough in Television”.

At the youthful age of 22, Keke has made history several times over. She was the youngest person to ever host a talk show. She was also the first African American woman to play Cinderella on Broadway.

“From the onset of her career, Keke Palmer has broken barriers, achieved success and shown the world the true depth of her creative talent,” said NAB Executive Vice President of Television Marcellus Alexander. “We are honored to present her with this year’s Television Chairman’s Award.”

The inaugural recipient of the award was Emmy and Golden Globe winner Kelsey Grammar in 2009. The most recent honoree was “Black-ish” star Tracee Ellis Ross in 2015.

Keke will receive the award on April 18 during the NAB Show Television Luncheon in Las Vegas.
