It’s hard to believe that today marks the 10year mark of the passing of Aaliyah :(! I still remember it like it was yesterday, I was in shock when I heard the news on the radio that Saturday night! This post will remain at the top of the home page to this site for the day. It will also be updated throughout the day with more videos and pics. Anyone who knows me, knows that I call Aaliyah my first love!

Check out the video above as celebrities such as; Pharrell Williams, Robin Thicke, Tristian Wilds, Tatyana Ali, Musiq Soulchild, Toccara Jones, Lance Gross, Jessica White speak about Aaliyah.

Brandy, Raven-Symone, Game, Tami Roman, Regina King, Musiq, LaLa, Bridget Kelly, Garcelle Beauvais, & Scott Storch Remember Aaliyah

Today is the 10 year anniversary of Aaliyah’s passing and I’m sitting here reminiscing and playing music, thinking of the times we spent together, working, laughing, singing, dancing, cutting up. But really, it’s not all that different from any other day because I do think about her every day.

Not on purpose, but she is my friend and that’s just how I do. I’ve told the same stories for 9 years – how we met, how me and Tim were scared but Aaliyah was so welcoming and had this smile and way about her that put us at ease, that she liked to take chances and we were able to just be who we were and make good records together.

She loved playing jokes and that’s another part of her personality that made it fun to be around her. As a talent, I think she’s missed because she was unique and a true triple threat. She could sing, dance, and her acting was starting to take off.

I’m glad for the memories I have and the time we got to spend together, but I miss my friend.

Rest In Peace and Power Baby Girl.

Aaliyah: “I Miss You” {Video}

Dearest Sweet Aaliayh,

I have trouble accepting the fact that you’re gone, so I won’t!
It’ll be like we went for a while without seeing each another.
But I can understand why God would’ve wanted you close to him, because you truly were an angel on earth.
In my own special way I love you and I miss you!

R.i.P Ashford of Ashford & Simpson

“Solid (As A Rock)”

“I’m Every Woman”

(CNN) — Nickolas Ashford, one-half of the successful Motown singer-songwriter duo of “Ashford and Simpson,” died Monday afternoon, his longtime former publicist said…

Ashford had been battling and was being treated for throat cancer…

His wife and children were at his bedside when he died…

He was 69, reported imdb.com and numerous other sources.

Ashford and Simpson met in 1964 in New York City. Within two years, as songwriters with Scepter Songwriters, they scored their first hit with Ray Charles’ “Let’s Go Get Stoned.”
The couple then joined Motown Records, where they wrote a host of popular songs for the likes of Marvin Gaye, Tammi Terrell and Diana Ross including “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing” and “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand).” Later in their careers, their songwriting credits included Chaka Khan’s “I’m Every Woman.”
In the ’70s, Ashford and Simpson went from songwriters to performers, releasing nine albums for Motown, Warner Brothers Records (like CNN, a division of Time Warner) and Capitol Records between 1973 and 1984. Their biggest hit during that time was the song “Solid (As a Rock).”

The Songwriters Hall of Fame inducted Ashford and his wife in 2002, calling them “one of the most prolific and versatile musical couples in recording history.”
