Zendaya will soon be combining both her acting and singing talents for a new role in an upcoming Lifetime movie Aaliyah: Princess of R&B!
Variety has reported that the Replay singer will be starring in the Lifetime original biotopic movie about the late actress/singer Aaliyah, who died in 2001 in a plane crash.
Not only will Zendaya be starring in the movie, but the star will also be recording four of Aaliyah’s songs for the film!
“Known to most by only her first name, Aaliyah Dana Haughton made her debut on “Star Search” at age 10 and was only 22 years old when a plane carrying her and some of her video crew crashed after taking off from a Bahamian runway. The film will depict her journey and rise to fame.”
Zendaya will begin production on the telefilm later on this summer before it’s premiere in the fall.
