Disney star cast as Aaliyah in TV movie Published: June 18, 2014

It's not easy to step into the shoes of a late icon. But Zendaya Coleman is doing exactly that, according to Yahoo Music.

Lifetime announced on Monday that the Disney star, 17, has been cast to play R&B singer Aaliyah in the cable channel's upcoming biopic Aaliyah: Princess of R&B.

Aaliyah was at the peak of her career when, at the age of 22, she died in a plane crash in the Bahamas, just after shooting the music video for her single "Rock the Boat," Yahoo Music reports.
