Aaliyah”(January 16, 1979 – August 25, 2001)Aaliyah Dana Haughton, also known primarily by the pseudonym “Aaliyah” celebrates a Birthday!
The songstress and dancer graced the world with an alluring and confident persona that is immolated by female singers in the industry today.
The late vocalist and dancer breathed her first breathe of life, today in 1979.
Nostalgia is in the air…
I am attempting to close the door on sadness because this is the date you lived and not the date you died.
We can’t ever replace you “Baby Girl!”
We are blessed to have your confidence, intelligence and voice so you will never be completely gone.
You were “One In A Million” and you had “Swagger” before it was even an urban slang.
While most of your singing peers were wearing dresses and heels, you came into the game wearing Timberland’s, Hoodies, and Bandannas and a halter top.
You decided to take a masculine approach to your sexuality and decided to dress like the men in her videos but with her unique sexuality and charisma.
Your uncanny ability to adorn head bands and hoodies, made you a Feminist Icon and Fashion Icon.
You decided what sexuality was and created you, and your Independence.
We still haven’t found anyone that was just like you…
You and that angelic voice will forever be solidify you in our musical history.
I am not going to play “Miss You” …
Your legacy and influence lives on in our lives.
Your choreography and voice are perfection and you can’t copy that, even in 2014.
The music industry still samples your voice, fashion and swagger because spiritually you are still with us.
Posthumously, Aaliyah has a Cult Following, which is well deserved.
We shouldn’t cry today because YOU were born today!
We Appreciate you and miss you because “Baby Girl” you are “One In A Million.”
Here is you with your musical family on “Black Ground Records.”
