Remembering Aaliyah Dana Haugton.

["Forever Young" is the poem her brother Rashad wrote after her death]

Today, August 25, 2009 @ 6:45P, marks the 8 year anniversary of Aaliyah's Death. Aaliyah Haugton, Anthony Dodd, Eric Foreman, Scott Gallin, Keeth Wallace, Gina Smith, Douglas Kratz, Christopher Maldonado, and Luis Morales all died in the plane crash leaving Marsh Harbor, Bahamas where Aaliyah shot the video for Rock The Boat.

I was and always will be a big fan of Aaliyah. She is truly missed. Her posters still hang in my room, and her "A" will always be on my shoulder. At 6:45P, light a candle!

Sidenote: Isnt it crazy how Static Major appears in the video and now he's gone, too? Life is TOO short.

Below, is the last photo taken of the crew before they boarded the Cessna plane.

Check out the video from MTV Diary: Aaliyah, which was filmed a month before she died. Also, her final video, Rock The Boat.
