Came across a nice written article today from Essence talking with Fatima Noir on Aaliyah’s legacy and her new plans on a project regarding a 90s, nostalgic television show for NBC. You go girl! Aaliyah’s legacy will always remain through her fans, and it’s nice to know that after all these years, she is remembered in a positive light! 🙏💚 You can view the full article via the link here.

The wait is finally over! As promised, here is an exclusive, never before seen image of Aaliyah (the first out of a series of three in total!) courtesy of photographer Eric Johnson, who has launched his own shop with full family approval from the Haughtons, as well as Aaliyah's estate. You can keep tabs on his store via his Instagram page @shop_upstairsaterics for more information. The t-shirt will be available to order on the 28th March, (in exactly a weeks time) so be sure not miss out on this amazing opportunity! All proceeds will go to the Aaliyah Memorial Fund, as well as other various charities that Aaliyah held dear to her heart.
Here is a special message from Eric himself...
Eric Johnson: "#Aaliyah
Anyhoo...check out the images and video below to witness the whole process of how these beautiful t-shirt designs were made! You can clearly tell that a lot of love went into making these! Enjoy my lovelies! ;)

For all those who missed out, Eric posted one of his sample tees last January on Aaliyah's Birthday, where one lucky guy had the honour and privilege of wearing his design, which you can view below here...
So happy to see @theonlymikeq wearing one of our #Aaliyah tee's. This is our first sample & it's only fitting that Mike would be first to rock one. Aaliyah's estate has approved the first 3 designs (all previously unreleased photos) & we will share very soon. Happy Birthday Aaliyah. We love youA photo posted by Upstairs at Eric's (@shop_upstairsaterics) on

Who can peep Lili? 😉 and R.I.P Big Poppa 🙏💚 19 years ago today we lost an iconic Hip-Hop legend, who to this very day, still lives on through his music, just as Aaliyah did.
