Aaliyah Archives News: One In A Million (A Special Fan Tribute)


As you all know, the 20th anniversary for the One In A Million album will be approaching in the next 4 months, and as a special tribute, one of my favourite #TeamAaliyah fan pages Maximum Aaliyah (a.k.a- Sabrina) has decided to create a special book which ALL of us can contribute to! :D For me personally, this is my favourite album out of all the Aaliyah albums for many reasons, since it really got me into her music.

So you're probably wondering right now, "How can I take part?" and "What do I have to do?" Well it's quite simple, Sabrina herself has listed a few things which she requires from all of us, so without further a due here goes...


1) Write a text about the album (e.g: How you knew about it, your favourite songs, your memories, etc... The text MUST contain at least 15/20 lines!


2) Take a picture of yourself with the CD, cassette, vinyl of 'One In A Million'. You can also add promo items from this era to your picture if you want to!


3) And finally... send them all to aaliyah71@hotmail.fr


Remember that this book will be sent to Ferncliff Cemetery, where Aaliyah's gravesite resides in New York. Sabrina will hopefully be visiting New York around end of August/beginning of September. If she is unable to go, the book will still be sent regardless, so don't miss out on a great opportunity for all of us fans to unite and come together in a positive way. Awhile ago, there was another anniversary tribute we did for the Age Ain't Nothing But A Number album which you can check out here. I think this is such an amazing idea and one which I will definitely contribute to. Thank you Sabrina for all that you do! You really live up to your fan page name 'Maximum Aaliyah' ;) :D

Aaliyah: Rare Photo


Repost via @getdizzy23: “I didn’t post this picture of myself & the late great Aaliyah to brag, but to rather reflect back to the kind of woman that has been forgotten about. Aaliyah was like the last of a dying breed, the natural woman. The woman who didn’t have the biggest breasts, the biggest butt, etc. but was perfectly fine with it. Girls everywhere wanted to be like Aaliyah. Many of us guys had Aaliyah as our dream girl, I know I did. I personally told her she was the finest woman on this earth! Lol. And Aaliyah didn’t have all that stuff, the fake body, the injections, etc. But now… It’s the "Age of the Kardashian” and it’s trending nationwide. Many women see themselves in comparison to someone with enhancements and all of a sudden feel like they’re not good enough. So they “upgrade”, thinking it will make their lives better, yet find themselves still depressed because their problems were much deeper than how they looked. Many don’t realize that they are good enough as they are and that God didn’t make a mistake when he made them. Remember, God is perfect and he made us in his image. Be happy about who you are and what you look like! Besides… Ladies, you shouldn’t want a guy that wants you for your body anyway. Upgrade who you are on the inside, fix your insecurities within, and get closer to looking like a reflection of Christ instead of the Kim Kardashians, the Nicki Minajs, and the Amber Roses of the world. It’s said that Satan was a beautiful angel when he was in Heaven. He was so vain, he tried to upstage God the same way that many girls upstage each other, and it eventually got him kicked out of Heaven. Just like real recognizes real, fake recognizes fake. If you want a real man, then you’ve got to be a REAL woman" | Wow….not only do I love this rare gem shared, I was really moved by your caption alone. Nothing but realness preached here! As a woman myself, I believe this is something that we need to teach the younger generation of girls and boys early on, otherwise they will just look at things around them from the media, reality tv etc... deeming it as normal, when it's not. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful picture, and an even more beautiful, deep caption...

Aaliyah: Detroit School Of Arts (Memorial Recital Hall)





Some beautiful images of Aaliyah's old high school captured by @craigaking who actually worked with Aaliyah, co-writing the song 'Never Givin' Up' along with Monica Payne. For those who don't know, Aaliyah graduated at this very high school in 1997. When she had passed away, the school decided to rename their Recital Hall in memory of her. I honestly believe that this is the sweetest thing ever! Her memory will always live on and never be forgotten for future generations to come. I know that if she were alive today, she would of been very proud, and loved to of seen this.
