The announcement was made today. Disney television star Zendaya Coleman is set to play R&B songstress Aaliyah in the made-for TV movie on Lifetime. Aaliyah died at the age of 22 in a plane crash in 2001. The biopic — Aaliyah: Princess of R&B, based on the bestselling book Aaliyah: More Than a Woman — will tell the story of the “One in a Million” singer’s life and death, from her debut on Star Search to her rise to her fame and, finally, her tragic passing. Is Zendaya the right person for the role?
