Fans Remember Aaliyah on Her 39th Birthday
It's hard to believe, but Aaliyah would've been 39 years-old today.
The iconic singer, who was tragically killed in an airplane crash on August 25, 2001 at only 22 years-old, has continued to significantly impact music since her untimely death. Each year, fans gather on social media to remember her influence and honor her legacy, and this year is no different.
Exemplifying her lasting impact on both music and culture, MAC Cosmetics announced back in August that it will roll out the MAC Aaliyah Collection, set to debut in summer 2018. The line was inspired by a Change.org petition that was started by fans two years ago.
“Aaliyah is truly one in a million — an unstoppable icon whose groundbreaking work in R&B music and film inspires us all," the cosmetic brand announced on Instagram.
Today, fans on social media are remembering her music, talent and beauty— both inside and out— with photos, interview excerpts and video montages.
