Aaliyah: One in a Million
by Yvette Travillian
Today is that awful day that I dread each year. August 25; the day the world of R&B lost one of its most talented sweethearts, Aaliyah Dana Haughton. I will never forget where I was when I got the news; it sucked then and it still sucks now. Nine years later I still feel that there is no other chick out there who can touch her. Aaliyah’s style, grace and talent was just so damn impeccable and it is constantly emulated to this day.
Today will be a little sad for me and all the rest of her hard-core fans out there, but as I say every year… at least we still have her music and videos to help us remember all that she contributed to the entertainment industry.
She touched many lives throughout her short career and without a doubt was considered ‘one in a million’. She will forever be missed. R.I.P Baby Girl.
