Eight years ago the world lost an angel. On August 25th, 2001, singer/actress Aaliyah was taken away from us. The world mourned the loss of a beautiful person, inside and out. Today we remember Aaliyah Dana Haughton and we celebrate her legacy.Â Â She lives on forever through her family, friends and supporters.
A special shout out toÂ @ivoryshortyÂ for postingÂ a poemÂ she wrote in tributeÂ of Aaliyah. So touching.
I chose to post this paticular Aaliyah performance, because it’s not only one of my favorites but it was suchÂ aÂ pivotal moment in her career. She became the youngest African American woman ever, to performÂ at the Oscar Awards and it was also the first time she ever wore a dress as a performer (fans were shocked). Watch as she belts the theme song to Anastasia wih only the poise that Aaliyah can. One of her best vocal performances ever.
