Remembering Aaliyah

Remembering Aaliyah

Today is the day that the world’s heart fell apart 15 years ago. On August 25, 2001, Aaliyah passed away at the age of 22 on a plane that crashed shortly after takeoff in the Bahamas where her and her team shot the music video for “Rock The Boat.”

Also on that plane were security guard Scott Gallin (41), family friend Keith Wallace (49), record label employees Douglas Kratz (28) and Gina Smith (29), hair stylists Eric Foreman (29) and Anthony Dodd (34), make up artist Christopher Maldonado (32), and pilot Luis Morales III (30).

To remember the beautiful Aaliyah, here are some of our favorite music videos from her: 

10. “Miss You”

9. “Don’t Know What To Tell Ya”

8. “We Need A Resolution”

7. “I Care 4 U”

6. “Hot Like Fire”

5. “More Than A Woman”

4. “Try Again”

3. “One In A Million”

2. “Are You That Somebody”

1. “Rock The Boat”

We love and miss you Aaliyah – CelebMix

Hi! I'm Mel. I graduated with a BA in print journalism with music management as my minor. I loved music since I was a kid because it was always a way my family and I bonded, as well as a way to express myself on my own time as I got older. I’m not a singer and I don’t play an instrument, so my way of being part of the music industry is by getting to write about the music I love in various reviews and through my concert photography. Another goal? To make people smile.
