Happy Birthday, Aaliyah.
Before Aaliyah’s untimely death on August 25, 2001, the world absolutely adored her. She was revered as the charismatic “girl next door” who was extremely talented, but when she unexpectedly died at the tender age of 22, the world was crushed.
Aaliyah’s voice was angelic, her beauty was remarkable, but most importantly, her spirit was pure.
