Fans of Emmy-award-winning actress and singer Keke Palmer are raving about her rendition of the National Anthem before Tuesday’s Game 1 of the 2021 World Series between the Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros.

Palmer fans were so impressed by her performance that she started trending on Twitter.

The game ended with a 6-2 Atlanta victory. 

“Keke killed that, she is so underrated,” wrote one Twitter user. Another commented, “Voice is lovely @KekePalmer would love to have heard it singing something other than this mockery and insult this song is to Our People.”

Last month, Palmer made headlines after she joked about the all-vegan meal served at this year’s Met Gala.

Sharing a screenshot of her Instagram story, Palmer wrote to her fans on Twitter who were asking about the menu, “the menu chile.” The screenshot featured a small amount of food, which Palmer wrote over it, “This why they don’t show ya’ll the food,” before adding, “I’m just playinnnn.”

The gala’s chef, Marcus Samuelsson, who owns Harlem’s popular Red Rooster eatery, opened up to TMZ to defend the menu at the fancy event. TMZ reported that Samuelsson, “helped select the 10 up-and-coming chefs who created the Met Gala menu.”

He told TMZ that Palmer’s picture is correct in that it is some of what was served that night.

“As for Keke’s plate, Marcus tells us it was barley topped with roasted mushrooms, tomato salad with corn and zucchini slices,” TMZ reports. “Marcus says food, like anything, is a matter of taste, and it tasted plenty good.”

In related news, during Tuesday night’s Celebrity Game Face on E!, Palmer shared the dating advice that her former Long Shots co-star Ice Cube once told her.

“When I was, I think 12 years old, I did the Long Shots with Ice Cube. When I was on the set, I grew up in the industry, but I was starting to get older at this point. I was starting to get together,” Palmer joked.

“Ice Cube, he pulled me to the side. He was like, ‘Keke, I know you’re growing up, and I just want you to understand the way these men are seeing you isn’t always how you see yourself.’ And that was Ice Cube. Isn’t he the best?”
