Canadian-born R&B singer Keisha Chante
has been tapped to portray
the late Aaliyah
in a biopic recounting the life and untimely death of the hip-hop and R&B artist.
The film is scheduled for release next year.
Although Chante's acting resume is a short one, she has starred in a number of independent flicks and boasts a 2006 R&B album out called 2U
with another on the way.
Sources say she was selected for her striking resemblance to the multi Grammy-nominated Aaliyah.
