Commemorate 10 Years Of Aaliyah August 25, 2001, a plane crash that killed a young singer 22 years later. Tragic indeed. Now, ten years have passed and the fan and close friend Aaliyah Aaliyah back to take the time to commemorate the now gone. “Aaliyah until now you still irreplaceable Ure music is timeless! We all miss you! # WeLoveuAaliyah!” Missy Elliot wrote via Twitter.
