In Memory Of Baby Girl...



I can't believe it's almost been 10 years since Aaliyah died in a plane crash. I can remember waking up early Sunday morning and turning on the TV to hear the news that she'd died the night before. I think part of the reason Aaliyah's death was so shocking to everyone in our generation is because she was the first R&B performer we'd all grown up with to pass so suddenly. What I loved about Aaliyah, besides her music, was how secure she was in her identity as an artist. She understood her voice and how to use it, and created her own musical sound and visual sense, with her dark shades and all black clothing. She had a sense of mystery, something that is extremely hard for artists to pull off in today's world. I still wonder what kind of music or movies she would be doing now. Rest in peace Aaliyah. Take a look at a few of my favorite Aaliyah cuts(there are so many to choose from) below:
