♥♥ August 25, 2010 marks 9 years since the passing of the beloved R&B angel Aaliyah Dana Haughton. On August 25, 2001, just after Aaliyah shot her video for “Rock the Boat” in the Bahamas, she and eight others were tragically killed in a plane crash. Even though Aaliyah is no longer physically with us, the style, grace, and undeniable talent that she so effortlessly portrayed through her music linger on. She was an amazing singer, actress, model, and dancer who inspired our generation to be dream-seekers and role models. If you look closely at the R&B singers of today, you’ll see bits and pieces of Aaliyah everywhere. She was a powerful, yet delicate presence that the world was very fortunate to have. Rest in peace Aaliyah. You were truly “One In A Million.”

Although this EP came out last year, it remains to be one of the best Aaliyah tributes to date!
