I'm a little late with this but January 16th would have been the 28th birthday of one of my fave R&B artistes, Aaliyah Dana Haughton. As you might recall, Aaliyah perished in a plane crash in the Bahamas on August 25, 2001 at the age of 22. Her long string of hits belied her tender age and just before her death she was on the verge of breaking out on the big screen in the Matrix sequels, having already starred in the popular movies Romeo Must Die and Queen of the Damned.
As a tribute, here are some photos of the talented Aaliyah. Sleep well, Baby Girl.
