IN REMEMBERANCE: Happy Birthday Aaliyah!

Today would have marked our baby girl Aaliyah’s 31st birthday. Isn’t it crazy how fast time flies? I can’t help but wonder just how different this R&B game would be if Aaliyah was still here: who would still matter despite her presence and who we would never know of. She was on her way to taking over the world and it always saddens me to think about her. She was one of the first female singers that was realistically relatable to young girls like me; she wasn’t oversexed and her musical growth went right along with her personal growth. Aaliyah at 31, can you imagine? Maybe we just were never meant to know what that would have been like.

I wish we did, though. Happy birthday Aaliyah; we miss you.

Below are some of my favorite videos for your viewing pleasure. I can’t watch them because…yeah I’m too sensitive but here you go, check them out.
