Broadway's Valisia LeKae: Grammys After Cancer Diagnosis!

Broadway star Valisia LeKae proudly shows off her bald head while walking the red carpet at the 2014 Grammy Awards held at the Staples Center on Sunday (January 26) in Los Angeles.

The 34-year-old Motown: The Musical actress recently revealed that she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and she had to drop out of the Broadway show while receiving treatment, though she hopes to return soon!

Valisia is nominated this evening for Best Musical Theater Album alongside her co-star Brandon Victor Dixon, who joined her on the red carpet. They are going up against the albums for the Broadway shows Kinky Boots and Matilda: The Musical.
