Aaliyah: Eternal (Courtesy Of Aaliyah.com)

Edit made by yours truly which was used by the Official Aaliyah Twitter page. Once again thank you for the love! 🙏🏽💚

As always the 25th has approached and without fail we always receive a special message from the Aaliyah.com official website. Here's what they had to share on the 17th Anniversary of Aaliyah's passing. What was interesting to witness were a few personal facts about Babygirl which I did not know before, so this was quite a pleasant surprise. Thank you as always to The Haughton's for all that you do for the fanbase. We truly appreciate all the little things


"Aaliyah We Love You Always and Forever!!
"On Saturday, August 25th, 2001, our Baby Girl Aaliyah Dana Haughton, Keith Wallace, Eric Foreman, Anthony Dodd, Christopher Maldonado, Gina Smith, Douglas Kratz, Scott Gallin, and Luis Morales, all passed on this day into Heaven. Their beautiful memories and love will be with us always…

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”
– Corinthians 13:4-8
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”
– John 14:1-3
“For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
– Corinthians 4:17-18

Footprints in the Sand
One night I dreamed a dream.
As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
One belonging to me and one to my Lord.
After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,
especially at the very lowest and saddest times,
there was only one set of footprints.
This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it.
“Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,
You’d walk with me all the way.
But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me.”
He whispered, “My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you."

Song Dedications

This is an Isley Brothers song. When she sang this song at a concert she sounded just like the original. We loved the Isley Brothers.


Vision of Love by Mariah Carey is the song Baby Girl sang for Jive Records. They we’re blown away.





This is the song Aaliyah sang at Rashad’s high school graduation at St. Thomas Aquinas High School. Baby Girl sang this song to her brother and to all the young people that were embarking on a new chapter in life. Sweet Perfection.










This is truly special!



The snake wrangler said the snakes moved so fluidly on her because they sensed no fear.


This video was shot in St.Petersburg, Russia. What an experience to remember, can not duplicate that.












Baby Girl sang My Heart Will Go On for an Oscar Show.












…Thank You To All Of Who Truly Love Baby Girl and All Our Friends!"
