Singer/Actress Keke Palmer To Host Disney Channel Inaugural Event

On the day before the actually inauguration of President-Elect Barack Obama, The Disney Channel will carry Monday night’s big event — “Kids’ Inaugural: We Are The Future” — from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. ET. Singer-actress Keke Palmer, star of Nickelodeon’s “True Jackson, VP,” is one of the hosts for the show, which will be staged in Washington’s Verizon Center. Palmer, 15, also hopes to meet Obama’s daughters Sasha, 7, and Malia, 10, backstage Monday night. Palmer said she moved from Chicago to Los Angeles when she was about the same age as Malia is now, and Obama’s election is “very special for my family and me, being from Chicago and all.” “I also feel like I know what Sasha and Malia are experiencing in terms of leaving Chicago at an early age, having to attend a brand new school, a new house, just new everything,” Palmer told CNN. “It’s not easy, but as long as you have great parents, which we all three have, then it turns out OK.” Those who don’t have cable will be able to hear it live on Radio Disney or watch it online later at
