It is hard to believe it has been 10 years since the death of songstress, actor and dancer Aaliyah Haughton. Even though she is no longer with us on earth, her memorable spirit is still something many fans adore and miss. With her girl-next-door charm and unforgettable signature quirks like the soft swoop bang over her eye, she was definitely a leading artist reigniting the charge for women in R&B.
The rising R&B singer-turned-actor was killed in a random plane crash in August 2001 after finishing the music video for her single “Rock the Boat.” At the time of her death, the “Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number” singer had just released her third studio album Aaliyah. Not to mention, buzz was generating around her latest appearance in the movie Queen Of The Damned. She was also rumored to be in talks of being casted in an updated version of the 1976 girl-group film Sparkle and various other projects. Recently, BET announced a special tribute honoring Aaliyah that will be held later today on BET at 8:00 p.m.
In honor of the late Baby Girl, here are some of her best videos:
