Aaliyah fans will forever wonder what could have become of the performer's life and career had she not died tragically in a plane crash 13 years ago.
Much like the 22-year-old's legacy, the Lifetime movie “Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B,” is riddled with untapped potential. Instead of digging deep and edifying audiences about segments of the singer and actress’ life that ...

How Elaine Stritch Got Her Big Broadway Break

Posted 8 months ago
