It’s been six years since we started hearing whispers about casting for an Aaliyah biopic and Keshia Chanté is still interested in the leading role. If you haven’t already heard, the 106 & Park TV host auditioned for the part over the weekend and was pretty excited to share the news. On Sunday, the singer/actress posted an Aaliyah-inspired photo on her Instagram with the caption “The Audition.”
Approximately two years prior to the audition, Keshia made a statement about not wanting to play the part—although she was an uber fan of the late singer—because the family was not ready to see Aaliyah’s story on camera. Today, it seems as though the VH1 movie is officially happening and Keshia is clearly gunning for the part. Do you think she has what it takes?
