Aaliyah was such a talent and died as such a young age. We will hear her music on The Replay Lunch today 12-1pm on STAR 100.7!
Aaliyah died in a plane crash in August of 2001. I remember I was at Kennywood that day and a friend approached me and said..”Mel, did you hear about Aaliyah and that she died?” I was shocked and crushed. I loved her. Of course the rumors swirled that the plane leaving the Bahamas that day was overloaded and that is why it went down. Aaliyah’s “Age Aint Nothing But A Number” was released in 1994 and “One In A Million” in 1996. Aaliyah Dana Haughton was also linked to singer R Kelly and some say they were secretely married. She had a movie and music career that was taking off and it was a young life taken too early.
