Aaliyah - Remembering Our One in a Million Nine Years Later

So Young and Gone So Soon - Remembering

Aaliyah Haughton 01/16/1979 - 08/25/ 2001

WE Remember Aaliyah, the beautiful young singer from the D, who's star shot straight into the heavens. From the first time I heard her sing as a lil girl at Motown Studio B, I knew she was destined to become one of the great voices of my time. Her simple way of twisting her voice around a melody and making it her own.

She was truly One in a Million
Only Aaliyah.. she was an angel in every sense of the word.. here on earth. she left us in 2001 due to the stupidity of men who didn't think enough of the star to use proper protocols when her chartered jet took off; quite overloaded from the bahamas. Within moments everyone on the ground knew something was terribly wrong.

Then it happened.. the unthinkable.
Aaliyah Was Gone.. Snatched up in an instant

In a puff of smoke and flames, the young singer was snatched from our realm and propelled into her own premature superstardom. little did we know at that time just how much her voice would teach us. But now we are grateful, just to have had the chance to hear Lil Aaliyah singing her heart out that day. She will always remain one of our favorite young voices.

We saw 22 white doves and we knew You Were A Superstar Evermore, We Will Never Forget You Aaliyah,  You Are OUR Baby Girl..

Today Global Grind Remembers Aaliyah - We wanted to send a special "We Miss You" to the late Aaliyah Haughton as today Wednesday, August 25th is 9 years to the day when Aaliyah tragically died in a plane crash. The plane crash happened in the Bahamas after filming the music video for "Rock The Boat".
Since the tragic accident and 9 years later, Aaliyah's music and movie career has achieved commercial success with several continued releases. And now her album sales are estimated to be between 24 to 32 million copies worldwide. The beautiful Singer, Model, Actress was only 22 years old in 2001, Aaliyah would have just now been hitting her 30s. That was a very sad sad Sunday Morning as most everyone probably remembers what they were doing or where they were when they got the news. So may she forever Rest In Peace as we can celebrate all that she left behind for the world.
Aaliyah brought a different style that changed the game... her style was sexy but it was something that was totally different. The sweatsuits, hats, and sneakers was a look that dudes loved and the girls copied. Via Sneaker Me Stupid, with the all white 1995 Nike Air More Uptempo in the first pic ...
Your spirit and touch lives on, Rest in Peace !
