I was and still am a fan of her music. Every time I hear one of her songs I can’t help but feel like, damn, I can’t believe she’s gone. I was always a fan of hers and it broke my heart the day I heard the news of her plane crash. Today is my cousin’s birthday and it’s part of the reason why I won’t forget the day that Heaven gained an angel. I was at a family party when I heard on the radio about the tragedy, I couldn’t believe it. Initial shock, then sadness ran through me. I remember the day, like it was yesterday.
Aaliyah’s music, style, and beauty is timeless and original. I felt like no one ever compared. There are so many talented actors and singers that, unfortunately, passed away, and I actually felt a piece of me cry. She was reaching a high in her career and during that time had projects in movies. Everyone pretty much saw big things ahead for her.
Even though I didn’t know Aaliyah personally or ever saw her live, I couldn’t help but feel like a fan that connected to her through her music. I know that her music will live on forever. We will always remember Aaliyah. ❤
