A Tribute to Aaliyah

aaliyah

Today marks the 14th anniversary of Aaliyah Haughton’s death. And anybody who knows me knows I was a HUGE fan of hers. I still am, really. I was a STAN before I knew what a stan was. Aaliyah gave me LIFE during my young, awkward tween phase, and it’s crazy how even in her death, she still breathes life into me, and so many others that loved her dearly.

6. Rock the Boat

As many of you know, on August 25, 2001, at 6:50 p.m., Aaliyah and several members of the record company boarded a twin-engine Cessna 402B (registration N8097W) at the Marsh Harbour Airport in Abaco Islands, The Bahamas, to travel to the Opa-locka Airport in Florida, after they completed filming the music video for “Rock the Boat.” It’s definitely kinda eerie to watch the video knowing what followed. But the video is beautiful nonetheless. Aaliyah will forever be missed by us all!
