Aaliyah was an American singer, model, and actress. Upon signing her first contract at the age of 12, the R&B world took immediate notice of her, which later helped here brand out into other areas such as acting. Her single, “Try Again,” was the first song to top the Billboard Hot 100 solely on airplay. At the age of 22, when she was at the height of her career, a plane crash ended her life.
When considering Aaliyah's track record, it's befitting that her name means "The highest, most exalted one, the best." Her parents, Diane and Michael, decided on the name based on the high hopes and expectations they would have if they had a daughter. Her success as both a recording artist and actress actually makes the name of a self-fulfilling prophecy. Aaliyah made her dreams come true. At 22, she not only had a very successful recording career but also established herself as a motion picture actress and an accomplished business woman....
I stay true to myself and my style, and I am always pushing myself to be aware of that and be original.
Aaliyah Memorial Fund
In her precious 22 years, Aaliyah achieved more than many do in several lifetimes...
An illuminating factor was her conviction to touch and help others. The Aaliyah Memorial Fund was created as a vehicle whereby her fans, friends, and family can contribute to and support causes that Aaliyah found important.
