It’s still hard to believe she’s gone.  Aalyiah was just getting started when she and 8 of her friends died tragically in a plan crash.  She was an American R&B recording artist, actress and model.  Though she was born in Brooklyn, Aaliyah was actually raised in Detroit.  Her career got started pretty early, at the age of 10 she appeared on the hit television show Star Search.  Then, at age 12, Aaliyah signed with Jive Records and after her uncle Barry introduced her to R. Kelly, who produced her debut album, “Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number”, the rest as they say was history. The album sold three million copies in the U.S. and was certified double platinum, there was no stopping her.

After filming the extremely successful movie Romeo Must Die with Jet Lei, Aaliyah set to star in another flick Queen of the Damned.  She had managed to filmed her part and then set out to The Bahamas to shoot the video of her new single “Rock The Boat”.  The song was the lead off single for her final album simply titled, “Aaliyah”.

To the horror of her family and fans alike, on August 25, 2001, Aaliyah and eight others were killed in an airplane crash in The Bahamas after filming the music video.  The pilot, Luis Morales III, turned out to be was unlicensed at the time of the accident and had traces of cocaine and alcohol in his system.  Aaliyah’s family later filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Blackhawk International Airways, which was settled out of court.

Today, Aaliyah would have been 33.  She lives non the less, through her music forever.
