Aaliyah Archives: News



As this August comes to a very quick end, Rashad left a special message for all of #TeamAaliyah, back on the 25th of Aaliyah's 14 year death anniversary, for anyone who happened to miss this. 

It's hard to believe that 14 years have passed by since our beloved Babygirl no longer remains with us in the physical form. However, she will always continue to remain with us in spirit just based on her influence alone, through both fashion and music. All these years and I'm proud to say that myself, along with all the other great fans I have come across, still holding down her legacy in the most positive way we know how (including the younger generation who have the best, perfect role model anyone could ever ask for!).

No matter how long a person goes, the raw pain still remains, so as always I will continue to keep The Haughton's in my prayers to give them the strength they need to battle each passing day, month and year. I believe this month has been a very blessed and special one based on the amount of rare photo's we've come across, as well as the MAC campaign which was launched to give Aaliyah her very own signature collection. (Petition link is...https://www.change.org/p/mac-cosmetics-estee-lauder-to-release-a-aaliyah-for-mac-limited-edition-collection-aaliyahformac?recruiter=128552080&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink if you have not signed already) I'm also eagerly anticipating on Timbaland's unreleased track as well as what aaliyah.com are going to launch. Exciting things are happening and I just can't wait any longer! :D

Aaliyah: We Remember...




“August 25: 14 years later.
I often remember bracing for this day annually and then it slips from my mind until the night before when just like last night, I tossed and turned all night and barely slept.
These angels perished this day, 14 years ago but it replays in my memory like it was 14 minutes ago. I remember laughter and joy, fun and friendship and in a blink, they were gone.

Why I was given the assignment of being with them that day and then taken off of the plane just days before, midshoot by Gina Smith so that they could have their privacy, still makes me tear up in wonder.
I pray that you are all resting well, being angels for your families, and Aaliyah, please know that your fans are as devoted as ever, if not more so.
With love,
Kevin E. Taylor
Producer/Creator
BET’s Access Granted”


Thank you @kevinetaylor that was very heart felt...As well as Aaliyah, we also remembered those who met the same fate on that very day. We remember definitely you all...

Repost via @rednyc1979: “Me and #Aaliyah #1997#brooklyn #ny I was 17 and gassed. After waiting in line for nearly 3 hours I heard security say, "regardless if this line is done she is leaving in 20 minutes”. I panicked. I had about 10 people in front of me. Finally I got to the front of the line and there was that flawless smile. Mouth full of white teeth just flashing in my direction. We had a brief convo and then I turned around to take this pic. Aaliyah reached out and pinched my side. And she laughed and said here you go. It was one of the most memorable 3 minutes of my life. Shout out to Dawn for making that happen. Everyone has a purpose in my life. So thank you. Can’t even replace that moment #oneinamillion (poor Rashad. I cut his head out back in the day for a collage)" | What a beautiful memory! Thank you for sharing that with us all! :o)
