Biography:

A star in the R&B world before she was even out of her teens, Aaliyah's promising career was tragically cut short by her death in a plane crash at age 22. Even with only three albums under her belt, she'd already earned a place as a talented trendsetter among the R&B elite. Following a successful transition to a more mature image, Aaliyah played a major role in popularizing the stuttering, futuristic production style that consumed hip-hop and urban soul in the late '90s. Her work with Timbaland, especially, was some of the most forward-looking R&B of its time, even while the competing neo-soul movement was gaining prominence. Aaliyah's death came on the heels of her third and most accomplished album, making it especially unfortunate that she was robbed of a chance to continue her creative development.
Aaliyah Dana Haughton was born January 16, 1979, in Brooklyn, and named after a Swahili word meaning "most exalted one." Her uncle, Barry Hankerson, was a manager and entertainment lawyer who was married to Gladys Knight for a time, and her mother, also a singer, enrolled Aaliyah in voice lessons before she'd even started school. Still very young, she moved with her family to Detroit, where she sang in several school plays. At age nine, she successfully auditioned for the TV show Star Search, where she performed "My Funny Valentine" (and lost). Two years later, thanks to her uncle Hankerson's connections, she spent five nights in Las Vegas performing as part of Gladys Knight's revue. In addition to his niece, Hankerson was also managing a rising R&B star named R. Kelly, and introduced the two in 1992. Kelly soon took Aaliyah under his wing and began writing and producing songs for her.

Her album Age Ain't Nothing but a Number was released and went platinum in the United States when she was 15, thanks to the popular singles "At Your Best (You Are Love)," "Back And Forth," and the title track.
Her (Double-Platinum) sophomore album, One In A Million, was produced by then-unknowns Timbaland and Missy Elliott and was released in late 1996. It featured the international smash hit, "If Your Girl Only Knew," whose single has gone double platinum in America. The title track went platinum-selling single in America, and Diane Warren's love ballad, "The One I Gave My Heart To" went gold. "Four Page Letter," and "Hot Like Fire," were somewhat less successful singles.

The Diane Warren-penned ballad "The One I Gave My Heart To" was also a Top Ten R&B hit, and One in a Million wound up going double platinum. In the meantime, Aaliyah graduated from high school (in 1997) and contributed several songs to film soundtracks. "Journey to the Past," from Anastasia, was nominated for an Oscar, and in early 1998 she had a major hit with "Are You That Somebody?" from Eddie Murphy's Dr. Dolittle (in which she also made a cameo appearance).

Aaliyah took her time recording a follow-up, and put the process completely on hold to start an acting career. She co-starred with martial-arts master Jet Li and rapper DMX in 2000's urban Shakespeare adaptation Romeo Must Die, and her accompanying soundtrack single, "Try Again," became her first number one hit on the pop charts that summer. Aaliyah subsequently completed filming on the Anne Rice vampire flick Queen of the Damned, playing the title role as a vampire queen, and was cast in a prominent role in the two sequels to The Matrix. Plus, she finally finished her long-awaited third album, with Timbaland again handling the most prominent tracks. Released in the summer of 2001, Aaliyah completed the singer's image overhaul into a sensual yet sensitive adult. The record received excellent reviews, and the first single, "We Need a Resolution," was a Top 20 R&B hit.

The plane crash that killed her occurred when she was returning from shooting a music video for "Rock the Boat," the album's second single, in the Bahamas in 2001. "Rock the Boat" went on to become an enormous hit, on radio and on video channels, and the tragic news of her death gave her album an enormous sales boost. Sadly, some of the album's biggest hits happened only after Aaliyah's death, including the remaining two singles, "More Than A Woman" (which had a video that had been filmed prior to Aaliyah's death), and "I Care 4 U," which was a huge radio hit even without a music video.
Most recently, a posthumous greatest hits album was released in Aaliyah's name. It also contains the new single, "Miss You," which features Missy Elliott, Lil Kim, DMX, and others paying tribute to Aaliyah in its video.
Aaliyah is interred in the Ferncliff Cemetery and Mausoleum, in Hartsdale, New York.
