Canadian Singer Keisha Chante Picked To Play Aaliyah In Biopic Movie

Canadian R&B singer Keisha Chante has been chosen to play hip hop artist Aaliyah Haughton who died in 2001 in a tragic plane crash.

While Chante’s acting repertoire may not be as extensive as her music career – she has only appeared in a few independent films including the Canadian Cat’s Cradle, but has garnered “Best New Artist, “Rising Star of the Year” and “Video of the Year” awards at the Canadian Urban Music Awards for her 2004 self-titled debut album.

The Canadian singer is also a Ford model and has been awarded a Juno award (the equivalent of an American Grammy), but can she pull off playing a beloved Hip Hop star. Let the angry blog comments begin!

More importantly, who will play Aaliyah’s svengali R. Kelly, whom she reportedly wed in secret while still a minor?
