Aaliyah Dana Haughton was everything during my time growing up, her music was apart of me growing up, she was extraordinary and out of this world beautiful as well as talented….
I remembered where I was when she passed away, I’ve never had any emotion over any musical artist dying, but Aaliyah! I remembered shedding some tears that day… I guess I looked at it as if she was literally just getting started, finding herself, her style, Aaliyah was embracing her womanhood and like that.. She was gone!
Aaliyah lived for her music and would like nothing more than to share the wonderful art she made with her fans.
I miss her talent, her originality, and her style but above all, I miss HER. Who she was as a person. A sweet, humble, down-to-earth being who despite all the things that would seem to make her untouchable, seemed like she could easily kick it with you and your girls. A breath of fresh air in such a dirty industry. RIP to the eight others who lost their lives as well…
