No, this isn't Aaliyah in the picture above, but it's singer and actress Keshia Chante. She is currently hosts 106th & Park with Bow Wow and she revealed over the weekend that she auditioned for the role of Aaliyah in the upcoming biopic. It will premiere and air exclusively on VH1 following the success of the TLC Story. There's a striking resemblance here, wouldn't you agree?
The details surrounding the project are mum, but we do know that Keshia has been tapped to play this role for quite sometime now. But due to the film's on and off again status and the family not supporting the film, she bowed out. Now that things are in the green to proceed, Keshia looks good and ready. She has the looks, and she can sing. So she just may score the honor.
