This is the moment Aaliyah fans have been waiting for!
Looks like VH1 is in production for an Aaliyah biopic. Up until now there has been a lot of back in forth between Aaliyah’s family not approving of a film being made but it looks like this one is a go. Now everyone wants to know who will have the honor of taking on such a legendary role.
Keshia Chante has been gunning for this role for quite some time now. Back in 2008 106 & Park host auditioned for the role but production never went forward because Aaliyah’s family was not 100% on board. She even channeled Aaliyah in a photoshoot back in 2012 so now that the role has reintroduced itself it’s only right that Keshia takes full advantage.
Four days ago Keshia took to Instagram with a photo of Aaliyah and captioned it:
The Audition [inserts emoji praying hands]
Back in 2011 she recorded an acoustic version of Aaliyah’s One In A Million. Watch it below.
If everything goes as planned the movie, One In A Million, will hit television screens on the 13th anniversary of Aaliyah’s death, August 25th.
How do we feel about Keshia taking on the role of Aaliyah?
