I've got good friends, a beautiful family and I've got a career. I thank God for his blessings every single chance I get. Aaliyah was signed to appear in several future films, including Honey , [79] a romantic film titled Some Kind of Blue , [80] and a Whitney Houston -produced remake of the film Sparkle. Houston also voiced her belief that Aaliyah was more than qualified for the role and the film was shelved after she died, since Aaliyah had "gone to a better place".

According to them, Aaliyah was passionate about playing the lead role of a young singer in a girl group. In November , Ronald Isley stated that Aaliyah and the Isley Brothers had discussed a collaboration prior to her death. I'm just a really happy girl right now. I honestly love every aspect of this business.

I feel very fulfilled and complete. Aaliyah had the vocal range of a soprano. Kelly-produced debut album, Aaliyah worked with Timbaland and Missy Elliott, whose productions were more electronic. Aaliyah's songs have been said to have "crisp production" and " staccato arrangements" that "extend genre boundaries" while containing "old-school" soul music.

As an artist, Aaliyah often voiced that she was inspired by a number of performers. She's a total performer I'd love to do a duet with Janet Jackson. Aaliyah focused on her public image throughout her career.

She often wore baggy clothes and sunglasses, stating that she wanted to be herself. Hilfiger's brother, Andy , called it "a whole new look" that was "classy but sexy". When she changed her hairstyle, Aaliyah took her mother's advice to cover her left eye, much like Veronica Lake.

Aaliyah was viewed by others as a role model. And then her second album, One in a Million went double platinum. She had the leading role in Romeo Must Die , which was a box office success. She's won numerous awards, several MTV music video awards, and aside from her professional successes, many of her lyrics are very inspirational and uplifting. She also carried herself in a very professional manner.

She was well spoken. She was beautiful, but she didn't use her beauty to sell her music. She used her talent. Many young hip-hop fans greatly admire her. She also was seen by others as a sex symbol.

Aaliyah did not have a problem with being considered one. If you embrace it, it can be a very beautiful thing. I am totally cool with that. I see myself as sexy. If you are comfortable with it, it can be very classy and it can be very appealing. She reinforced her mother's belief by saying that she did feel "sexy for sure" and that she embraced it and was comfortable with this view of her.

In her spare time, she was mostly a home person, which dated back to her younger years, but on occasion went out and played laser tag. She reasoned this was due to her liking "the simple things in life".

Aaliyah's family played a major role in the course of her career. Her mother assisted her in her career while brother Rashad Haughton and cousin Jomo Hankerson worked with her consistently. She ran all of her decisions by Rashad. Aaliyah was known to have usually been accompanied by members of her family and the "Rock the Boat" filming was credited by Rashad Haughton as being the first and only time her family was not present. In October , Rashad stated: The circumstances surrounding this last video were really strange because my mother had eye surgery and couldn't fly.

That really bothered her because she always traveled. My dad had to take care of my mom at that time. And I went to Australia to visit some friends. We really couldn't understand why we weren't there.

You ask yourself maybe we could have stopped it. But you can't really answer the question. There's always gonna be that question of why. Gladys Knight , who had been married to Aaliyah's uncle Barry Hankerson , was essential to the start of Aaliyah's career as she gave her many of her earlier performances. One of their last conversations concerned Aaliyah having difficulty with "another young artist" that she was trying to work with. Knight felt the argument was "petty" and insisted that she remain being who she was in spite of the conflict.

Kelly without her parents' knowledge. Aaliyah reportedly developed a friendship with R. Kelly during the recording of her debut album. As she recalled to Vibe magazine in , she and R. Kelly would "go watch a movie" and "go eat" when she got tired and would then "come back and work". She described the relationship between her and R.

Kelly as being "rather close. Kelly, she urged them not to believe "all that mess" and that she and R. Kelly were "close" and "people took it the wrong way. Kelly's entourage, wrote that R.

Kelly told him "in a voice that sounded as if he wanted to burst into tears" that he thought Aaliyah was pregnant. Kelly told me that he and Aaliyah got together and it was just magic. Or that she was coming and going in and out of his house. People would see her walking his dog, 12 Play, with her basketball cap and sunglasses on. Every time I asked the label, they said it was platonic. But I kept hearing complaints from people about her being in the studio with all those men. At 15," Brown said.

Aaliyah admitted in court documents that she had lied about her age. In May , she filed suit in Cook County seeking to have all records of the marriage expunged because she was not old enough under state law to get married without her parents' consent. It was reported that she cut off all professional and personal ties with R.

Kelly after the marriage was annulled and ceased having contact with him. Kelly and the scandal over the marriage made it difficult to find producers for her second album. Aaliyah was known to avoid answering questions regarding R. Kelly following the professional split. During an interview with Christopher John Farley, she was asked if she was still in contact with him and if she would ever work with him again. Farley said Aaliyah responded with a "firm, frosty" 'No' to both of the questions.

Kelly comes up, she doesn't even speak his name, and nobody's allowed to ask about it at all". Kelly would have other allegations made about him regarding underage girls in the years following her death and his marriage to Aaliyah was used to evidence his involvement with them. He refused to discuss his relationship with her, citing that she was dead.

That was a whole other situation, a whole other time, it was a whole other thing, and I'm sure that people also know that. Aaliyah was dating co-founder of Roc-A-Fella Records Damon Dash at the time of her death and, though they were not formally engaged, in interviews given after Aaliyah's death, Dash claimed the couple had planned to marry. Meeting someone that is trying to do the same thing you are doing in the urban market, in the same urban market place but not really being so urban.

It was just; her mind was where my mind was. She understood me and she got my jokes. She thought my jokes were funny. Dash expressed his belief that Aaliyah was the "one" and claimed the pair were not officially engaged, but had spoken about getting married prior to her death.

In May , she hosted a party for Dash's 30th birthday at a New York City club, where they were spotted together and Dash was seen escorting her to a bathroom. Addressing this, Aaliyah stated that she and Dash were just "very good friends" and chose to "keep it at that" for the time being. The couple were separated for long periods at a time, as Dash recalled that Aaliyah continuously shot films and would be gone for months often to come back shortly and continue her schedule.

Dash was also committed to "his own thing", which did not make matters any better. Despite this, they were understanding that the time they had together was special. Dash remembered they would "be in a room full of people talking to each other and it felt like everyone was listening but it would be just us. It would be like we were the only ones in the room". Dash always felt their time together was essential and Aaliyah was the person he was interested in being with, which is why, as he claimed, they had begun speaking about engagement.

On August 25, , at 6: The designated airplane was smaller than the Cessna on which they had originally arrived, but the whole party and all of the equipment were accommodated on board. Initial reports of the crash identified Luis Morales as "L Marael". According to findings from an inquest conducted by the coroner's office in the Bahamas, Aaliyah suffered from "severe burns and a blow to the head", in addition to severe shock and a weak heart.

Some of the bodies were badly burned in the crash. Morales falsely obtained his FAA license by showing hundreds of hours never flown, and he may also have falsified how many hours he had flown in order to get a job with his employer, Blackhawk International Airways.

Aaliyah's funeral services were held on August 31, , at the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home and St. Ignatius Loyola Church in Manhattan. Her body was set in a silver-plated copper-deposit casket , which was carried in a glass horse-drawn hearse. After Aaliyah's death, the German newspaper Die Zeit published excerpts from an interview done shortly before her death, in which she described a recurring dream: Someone is following me.

I don't know why. Then suddenly I lift off. How do I feel? As if I am swimming in the air. Nobody can reach me. Nobody can touch me. It's a wonderful feeling. Immediately after Aaliyah's death, there was uncertainty over whether the music video for "Rock the Boat" would ever air. Before its release, Aaliyah's brother, Rashad, re-dubbed some of her lines during post-production. The documentary, by Pogus Caesar , contained previously unseen footage shot of her career beginnings in when she was appearing in the Netherlands.

In March , music producer Jeffrey "J-Dub" Walker announced on his Twitter account that a song "Steady Ground", which he produced for Aaliyah's third album, would be included in the forthcoming posthumous Aaliyah album.

This second proposed posthumous album would feature this song using demo vocals, as Walker claims the originals were somehow lost by his sound engineer. Aaliyah's brother Rashad later refuted Walker's claim, claiming that "no official album [is] being released and supported by the Haughton family.

The song was produced by Noah "40" Shebib and features Canadian rapper Drake. We've seen the reports surfacing that they have been confirmed to participate but that is not the case. Both Missy and Timbaland are very sensitive to the loss still being felt by the family so we wanted to clear up any misinformation being circulated.

She will always live in our hearts. We have nothing but love and respect for her memory and for her loved ones left behind still grieving her loss. They are always in our prayers. The video features dancing holographic versions of Aaliyah. The song appears on Brown's sixth studio album, X. He exclaimed, "Aaliyah music only work with its soulmate, which is me". Shebib added, "Aaliyah's mother saying, 'I don't want this out' was enough for me I walked away very quickly.

Aaliyah's vocals were reported to be featured on the T-Pain mixtape, The Iron Way , on the track "Girlfriend", but were pulled after being met with criticism by fans and many in attendance at a New York listening session that he hosted for the project. She was featured on the Tink track "Million", which was released in May and contained samples from her song "One in a Million".

In August , Timbaland confirmed that he had unreleased vocals from Aaliyah and stated a "sneak peek" would be coming soon. In September , Aaliyah by Xyrena , an official tribute fragrance was announced. Kelefah Sanneh of The New York Times wrote that rather than being the song's focal point, Aaliyah "knew how to disappear into the music, how to match her voice to the bass line", and consequently "helped change the way popular music sounds; the twitchy, beat-driven songs of Destiny's Child owe a clear debt to 'Are You That Somebody'.

Popdust also mentioned that the forward-thinking music Aaliyah did with Timbaland and the experimental music being made by many underground alternative artists are somewhat cut from the same cloth. Keisha also mentioned that Aaliyah had been part of her life "since I was 6.

At the time, record companies did not believe in kid acts and it was just inspiring to see someone that was winning and winning being themselves. When I met her I embraced her, I was so happy to meet her. He also has a tattoo of the singer on his back. There has been continuing belief that Aaliyah would have achieved greater career success had it not been for her death.

Emil Wilbekin mentioned the deaths of The Notorious B. Nothing was gonna step in her way. No ego, no nervousness, no manipulation. There was nothing to stop her. Her cousin Jomo Hankerson stated the family would prefer a "major studio release along the lines" of What's Love Got to Do with It , the biopic based on the life of Tina Turner. Aaliyah's family has consulted a lawyer to stop Lifetime from using "any of the music, or any of the photographs and videos" they own and Jomo Hankerson claimed the TV network "didn't reach out.

The first single released from her second studio album, " If Your Girl Only Knew " was described as a sassy, organ-infused song.
