Today marks the 10th anniversary of the death of Miss Aaliyah Dana Haughton. Even though she passed at such an early age, she has made an impact through her involvement in the arts. With many singles, including “Back & Forth,” “One in a Million,” and “4 Page Letter,” she has, in my opinion, changed the face of R&B music. Not only has she been a part of music, she has appeared in the movies Romeo Must Die and Queen of the Damned. She has been thought of as one of the top artists of the decade (2000-2009).
10 years ago, after completing the “Rock the Boat” music video, Aaliyah and her crew decided to catch an earlier flight to the US. Their plane crashed shortly after takeoff, killing Aaliyah.
In memory of Aaliyah, many stars, including DMX, Timbaland, Missy Elliott, Lil Kim, Tweet, Queen Latifah, Jamie Foxx, and Jaheim participated in a music video for “Miss You.”
Aaliyah is one of my favorite artists of all time. It’s such a tragedy that she left us so soon. We’re all left wondering how she would have been today in the music industry.
Rest In Peace Aaliyah Dana Haughton
