Aaliyah to Receive Wax Figure by Madame Tussauds Las Vegas

Singer-actress Aaliyah is set to be immortalised in wax at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.

The wax figure of the Princess of R&B will be installed in the throwback room of the museum and will be unveiled on August 21, reported Billboard.

The official Twitter page in the memory of recording artist also confirmed the news.

"We are proud to announce that Aaliyah will be the next iconic star immortalized in wax at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas" the tweet read.

Fans and visitors will be open to viewing the statue starting on August 22, just a few days before the 18th anniversary of her tragic passing.

Aaliyah, aged 22, died in a plane crash in 2001 on her way back to the US from her 'Rock the Boat' video shoot in the Bahamas.

The single 'Try Again' earned her a Grammy Award nomination for Best Female R&B Vocalist.

Her third and final album 'Aaliyah' was released in 2001.
