Aaliyah Dana Haughton (January 16, 1979 – August 25, 2001)

I cant believe its been 10 years since the tragic loss of one of music's most beloved. I still remember the day all too well. Driving on the express way w/ my entire family & my sisters voice saying, "Oh my God." We all stopped only to get the news that Aaliyah had passed away in a plane crash. All of us were devastated, from my parents on down. So young & beautiful, and right at the cusp of what was sure to be her career taking off into the stratosphere. We were dumbfounded.

Below is a video of her just days before she died. The legendary BET duo AJ & Free had the pleasure of speaking with her just before she went off to shoot the video for "Rock the Boat". As we all know she never made it from that shoot.

There are many things in life we wont understand & for that reason we have to learn to take the good with the bad. What is fact is that Aaliyah brought light & love to this world. She left us great memories & music to forever cherish. My prayers go up for her family, friends, & fans today. May she continue to Rest in Love.
