Still missing Aaliyah 9 years later…

Still missing Aaliyah 9 years later…

Can you believe it’s been 9 years since we lost Aaliyah and I’m still sad!

I still remember what I was doing when I heard about her death, not one to easily cry I balled my eyes out when I heard she died…

While there is a lot of new talent, no one has been able to take her place and I do mean NO ONE!

I loved Aaliyah and it still saddends me that she is gone, she was on the verge of becoming something much greater…

But God had a bigger plan, remember one thing everyone live life to its fullest!

Tommorow isn’t promised..

Here is one of my favorite Aaliyah songs…

What is yours?

  • I have a soundtrack to my life and Aaliyah’s music is throughout it. Her album “Age Ain’t Nothin’ But A Number” takes me to my senior year of high school. “One And A Million” takes me to my undergrad days at Chicago State. I remember feeling so hurt and empty when I learned about her death. I was obsessed with the news and wanted to know every detail. I finally understood what my Mom was going through when I watched her cry about Marvin Gaye’s death. She was angel and she will forever be missed.
