Aaliyah Dana Haughton was as talented as she was beautiful and her tragic death at 22 in a plane crash is no less sad today than it was back on August 25th, 2001. When her self-titled album was released in July, I promptly snatched it up and played it over and over again. I listened to that album non-stop for quite sometime and even more so after her death. Even now as I sit here watching all of her old videos, I get a bit teary eyed. It’s tough to see such a talent cut down in the prime of her life, clearly having so much more to offer the world.
R.I.P. Baby Girl. You will always be missed.
