Zendaya Coleman seems to be on a roll!
She has been making major moves in her career and catching the public eye while doing so in a fashionable manner. She’s a stunning young, American actress and singer; who can now update her resume after being cast in the upcoming biopic featuring the late singer “Aaliyah”.
According to sources, singer/actress Zendaya Coleman has snagged the upcoming role of Aaliyah in a lifetime biopic that is set to debut on our television screens on August 22nd. Aaliyah’s uncle Barry Hankerson let the cat out of the bag last year that a movie was in the works, and soon after, casting calls were announced online. BET host Keshia Chanté, who has been auditioning for the role for years, announced online to her fans that she tried out for the part, but it was Zendaya who ended up landing the role.
The biopic — Aaliyah: Princess of R&B, based on the bestselling book Aaliyah: More Than a Woman — will tell the story of the “One in a Million” singer’s life and death, from her debut on Star Search to her rise to her fame and, finally, her tragic passing. Zendaya is set to perform four of Aaliayah’s hits in the film and I’m sure the former Disney star won’t disappoint.
