While it’s already old news that former Disney fixture Zendaya has nabbed the lead role in Lifetime’s Aaliyah biopic, names of those who have auditioned for the part are trickling out. 106 & Park host Keshia Chanté warmed up her vocals for an acoustic rendition of “One In A Million” while Bria Murphy and Drew Sidora were also said to be in the running.
Now, singer Teyana Taylor’s audition tapes have been leaked for the Instagram set thanks to tyronebee. “I know teyana is gona be mad at me for posting her audition clips but i honestly feel no one deserves this role more then her . She embraces Aaliyah dancing , acting and singing. (Which I’ll be posting all 3parts) but unfortunately @teyanataylor heard that Aaliyah’s family isn’t involved & she no longer wanted to be apart of the film. Here’s part 1 The dancing,” he wrote.
No word if the Lifetime flick will come to fruition as reports say that Aaliyah’s family is now trying to block the film from happening.
