Music has lost some of its greatest stars way too soon. Aaliyah Dana Houghton is definitely one of them. Houghton would have been 38 today but she lost her life in a plane crash in August of 2001. Aaliyah was a multi-talented woman who could sing, act, dance, and excel at just about anything she creatively put her mind to.
If you are lucky enough to have her CDs, vinyl, and cassettes, you can still enjoy her music. Unlike other artists, her discography is not available via the many streaming platforms available. Reasons for it not being available are still being sort. Thanks to YouTube, you can watch a variety of her top tracks and visuals. There are a bevy of videos available including Rock the Boat, which was the video she was filming in the Bahamas. Some of the beach scenes were shot only hours before her fatal flight. The flight she took leaving that shoot crashed immediately upon takeoff. There has been a void in the music industry ever since but these archived videos help to keep her spirit alive.
Take a look at some of our favorites below and feel free to let us know which ones are your favorite. See most of her videos here.
