Aaliyah Lifetime Collage 2

I really love Aaliyah, she was really wonderful. She made the best music  and I used to listen to her music over and over again, non-stop. I can’t wait to see this movie!!! Lifetime has been making some good movies, so I can’t wait…I have faith that this will do her justice and maybe show some of the younger people what a true talent she was!!!

Lifetime’s Original Movie, Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B, premieres Saturday, November 15, at 8pm ET/PT, starring Alexandra Shipp (House of Anubis) as the beloved actress and music sensation

The movie is based on the bestseller Aaliyah: More Than a Woman by former Time Magazine music editor Christopher John Farley (Game World) and chronicles the Superstar’s Rise to Fame and Tragic Death.

Before Beyonce and before Rihanna, self-proclaimed “street but sweet” Aaliyah was poised to become a global icon with top-selling albums, a hot movie career and an adoring fan base. The film 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. On August 25, 2001, at the height of her popularity, her life was tragically cut short when a plane carrying the singer and some of her video crew 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.
