This is a sponsored post on behalf of Aliyah – The Princess of R&B Movie coming to Lifetime. #AaliyahMovie #TalentisEternal
Aaliyah arrived on the music scene in 1994 and brought a fresh new take to music. Her style, her music, her presence was different and unique. She changed the R&B music scene in the 90’s and left behind a legacy after her tragic death in 2001. Aaliyah has been a favorite of mine since the first time I heard her music and I still play her “One in A Million” album in the car. I remember listening to her cd on my boombox with One in a Million, If your girl only knew, 4 page letter, and Hot like Fire being some of my favorite songs. Her album “Aaliyah” also had some favorites on it like We Need a Resolution and rock the boat. They’re all still songs I listen to today.
Before Beyoncé 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.
Lifetime’s Original Movie, “Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B,” starring Alexandra Shipp (“House of Anubis”) as the beloved actress and music sensation, is set to premiere Saturday, November 15, at 8pm ET/PT. The two-hour movie event is executive produced by Howard Braunstein, Debra Martin Chase and Wendy Williams, and based on the bestseller “Aaliyah: More Than a Woman” by former Time Magazine music editor Christopher John Farley (Game World).
I love lifetime movie and biopic’s so when I heard that Lifetime was making Aaliyah, The Princess of R&B I knew I would be tuning in to watch the movie about one of my favorite music artists. I can’t wait to see how the movie will turn out and I’d love for you to join me on November 15th at 8pm ET/PT (I’m on Pacific time). I’ll be watching and tweeting along with the movie.
