Win Original Jonathan Mannion Photos Courtesy Of 'Lifestyleher.com'
A big shoutout to AaliyahAlways for bringing this article to my attention. Here's another beautifully written article courtesy of lifestyleher.com who shared their own personal memories on their first ever encounter with our beloved Babygirl! :o)
"I’ll never forget the first time I met Aaliyah. It was the year 1999 and I was at a recording studio with my then partner Swizz Beats. We were gearing up to work on her third and final self-titled studio album and Swizz and I had just finished producing “Gotta Man”.
We had made the record while on a tour bus, brought it home and played it for Aaliyah that day. Aaliyah loved the track but she didn’t move fast enough. We then gave the record to our in-house artist Eve. The rest is history.
From the moment I met her, Aaliyah’s natural beauty, soft spoken voice + bubbly but super laid back personality captivated me. My personal memories with her are all full of smiles. She was a very special woman and her energy lit up a room. Over a decade has passed since she left us and her legacy remains.
As Women’s History Month winds down, I’d like to remember Aaliyah with a special giveaway.
Aaliyah’s last and final photo shoot took place with celebrity photographer Jonathan Mannion in 2001. As we remember Aaliyah and celebrate the end of Women’s History Month, I am hosting a special giveaway of one these last photos."
