The Aaliyah/Lifetime Biopic's Ship Set to Sail

This Shipp is sailing full steam ahead for the Aaliyah film, not an actual boat, but Nickelodeon's Alexandra Shipp will be playing the role of Aaliyah Dana Haughton, the sultry bluesy R&B singer who died in a tragic plane crash in 2001. The movie has already started filming with Shipp as Aaliyah and is set to be released by Lifetime on Nov. 15 of this year. There were many layers to Aaliyah's life, some public and some, not so public. It is unknown which aspects of her life Lifetime will include, such as her brief alleged marriage to scandal-prone R&B heavyweight R.Kelly, relationships with R&B heart-throb Ginuwine and former Roc-A-Fella records mogul Dame Dash. One thing is for sure, Aaliyah was loved by many family, friends, label-mates, other artists, public figures and designers. Plus, she still is.
