Before Beyonc and Rihanna, self-proclaimed “street but sweet” Aaliyah was poised to become a global icon. This Lifetime Original Movie starring Alexandra Shipp, follows the beautiful and talented performer’s inspirational journey, from her debut on Star Search at the age of ten to the challenges she faced during her rise to become the Princess of R&B. At the height of her popularity, her life was tragically cut short when a plane carrying the singer crashed after takeoff from a Bahamian runway. Although just 22-years-old at the time of her death, Aaliyah continues to lead a legacy as Billboard’s tenth most famous R&B artist of the past 25 years and one of the recording industry’s most successful artists in history. Cl Bennett, Rachael Crawford, Sterling Jarvis, A.J. Saudin, Lyriq Bent, Anthony Grant, Izaak Smith, Elise Neal and Chattrisse Dolabaille also star. (2014)
