My Video pick - week 22

  On the 25th  of Aug, 2001, a rare gem left this world.
Aaliyah used to be one of my screen idols.


A performer, a singer, a dancer, a unique lady with a very warm heart, no doubt I admired her guts so much. .
I remember how I replayed and replayed  her music video for "try again" until I perfected the choreography. 
I cried the day I heard the news about her death. It was very unlikely that the death of someone I didn't share anything in common with could make me tear up like that, but for some reasons, I believed it was because she had touched my heart. 
I can't believe it's been 10 years already, the memories still linger on.
Join millions of other fans around the world today, as we mark the 10th anniversary since the demise of this beautiful lady. May her soul continue to rest in peace.

Here's one of my best songs by her, "The one I gave my heart to"
Like always, EnjoY


  

And have a great weekend ahead :)

  5. I also cried when I heard about her death, loved her songs, and felt so connected to her back then cos I was about her age.

    Hmmm...this particular song makes me cry for other reasons...

  8. I was a big fan of Aaliyah but it just goes to show that despite the fame and fortune we are all mere mortals afterall. May she continue to sleep well wherever she is, Amen.
