Aaliyah: The Princess of RB takes a look at the young singer’s rise to fame with the help of her uncle Barry Hankerson. Aaliyah (Alexandra Shipp) was primed to be a star by Hankerson (Lyriq Bent), and the movie does a good job of showing that. In one of the few poignant moments in the film, Aaliyah can be seen getting a pep talk from her aunt Gladys Knight (Elise Neal) during an appearance she was making with the legendary singer. Neal, who got only a few minutes of screen time, was actually dead-on as Knight. If there is ever a biopic about Knight, the role should definitely go to Neal—just not on Lifetime, please.
