The former Cosby Kid is now conquering Broadway.
Raven-Symoné has tackled nearly every genre of entertainment: television, music and films. Now the 26-year-old is hitting the biggest notes of her career as the lead in Whoopi Goldberg's Sister Act on Broadway. The Tony-nominated play has gotten a resurgence due to Raven tackling Sister Deloris Van Cartier. According to Variety, the musical jumped 25% in ticket sales since the former Cosby Kid joined the cast.
In addition to being a Broadway diva, Raven isn't forgetting her philanthropic work with Plan It Forward via HerCampus.com. A campaign from Merck, Plan It Forward helps young women plan for the future.
Considering Raven's endeavors, we had to sit down with the Atlanta, Georgia native. Check out the video below where Raven talks Sister Act, HerCampus.com, the media frenzy over her weight loss and a special story about the late Whitney Houston.
