January 16th marks the day that the late singer Aaliyah was born. She was the world’s precious “Baby Girl” as she was affectionately called. She dominated the charts in the mid 90’s and early 2000’s. With songs like “Age Ain’t Nothing but A Number”, “One in A Million” and “4 Page Letter”, Aaliyah became a household name and the Princess of R&B. She put out three hit albums during her career and truly left her mark on music and influenced generations of artists.
Today would have been the singer’s 38th birthday. She passed away in 2001 after filming a video for single, “Rock the Boat”. But today we remember Aaliyah for all that she was and everything she did in her life. Happy Birthday Baby Girl!
