At the "Romeo Must Die"
If you're looking for an Aaliyah picture, you've come to
the right place. I'll show you some of the best, give you
great links, and of course, I have to pull out my own personal
picture with Aaliyah- sorry! But you would, too, wouldn't
See me there on the right? Too bad I was wearing that
goofy press ID tag!
In her precious 22 years Aaliyah achieved more than many do
in several lifetimes. An illuminating factor was her conviction
to touch and help others via her commitment to various causes
that thwart many afflictions of humanity. The Aaliyah Memorial
Fund was created as a vehicle whereby the general public could
contribute to and support causes that Aaliyah found important.
Some of the benefactors already include the Revlon/UCLA Women's
Breast Cancer Research Program, the Sloan Kettering Memorial Center
for Cancer Research, the National Breast Cancer Coalition and
Step-up Women's Network. Click here for more about the Aaliyah

Full Name: Aaliyah Haughton, Aaliyah is Swahili for "highest,
most exalted one"
Born: January 16, 1979.
Location: Detroit, she moved there when she was 5 years old.She
was born in Brooklyn.
Aaliyah personified originality with her enigmatic, smooth vocal
delivery, sophisticated musical sensibilities, and a masterful
sense of independence. The New York-born singer's 1994 debut album,
"AGE AIN'T NOTHING BUT A NUMBER," went platinum and
spawned a pair of gold singles: "Back & Forth" and
"At Your Best (You Are Love)". "I still remember
how nervous I was right before 'Back & Forth' came out,"
says the charismatic vocalist, who recorded her debut album at
age fourteen. "It was my first single, and I kept wondering
if people would accept it. When it went gold, I had my answer,
and it was just such an incredibly satisfying feeling." She
spent much of a whirlwind '94-'95 on the road, with tours that
took her across Europe, Japan, and as far as South Africa.
Aaliyah began performing at a young age, and by the time she
was eleven, she was singing on stage in Las Vegas for a five-night
stand with Gladys Knight's troupe. From there, the dedicated singer
would emerge from a non-stop vocal training regimen with a sound
and vision completely her own. "It came out of nowhere, yet
it felt totally natural," recalls Aaliyah. "I was tripped
out. As that first album was coming to a finish, I waslistening
back to the tracks thinking, 'Wow, that's really me. This is how
I am and how I sound.'"
