Back in 2015, the legendary singer and songwriter made in clear that she wanted Rowland to play her in a biopic. Knight also took to Instagram to express the same sentiment.

“It’s no secret that I love my @kellyrowland. So many people have said that Kelly would be the perfect person to star in my biopic. What do you think, #Knights?!”
