The music world was rocked in 2001 when R&B star Aaliyah was killed in a plane crash shortly after takeoff in the Bahamas.
Since then, an ongoing conversation about a film biopic of her life has been in and out of the rumor mill, but, it seems Lifetime has finally gotten the ball rolling and has just released a 15 second teaser of the made for TV movie. Starring Nickelodeon star, Alexandra Shipp, as Aaliyah, the physical similarities are uncanny.
With just 15 seconds to watch, it's hard to know how Shipp's acting and dance skills will hold up against the original princess of R&B, but it's nice that Aaliyah's memory is still alive and being thrust back into the spotlight.
You'll be able to watch the film in it's entirety Nov. 15th.
