Happy Friday Folks.
This week’s theme is singer turned actor or actor turned singer.
It still hurts to think about “Babygirl” and what a loss the music world suffered seven years ago. Can you believe she would have been 30 next month?
As I’m sure you remember, Aaliyah’s star also shined brightly on the big screen. She had major roles in Romeo Must Die and Queen of the Damned and was set to film The Matrix at the time of her death.
We’ll forever be missing you BabyGirl. Often imitated, never duplicated. Never. This means you Uncle Cici.
Let’s celebrate her music today with three of my favorites. I chose one from each of her albums, which was HARD because I loved just about every song on One In A Million.
Title track from debut album, “Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number”
Title track from second album, “One In A Million” (made my top 50 list)
“Rock The Boat” from her last album, Aaliyah. I don’t think we’ve ever seen her look more beautiful (if that’s even possible). It was also one of my favorite videos of hers and is still a bit hard to watch.
Share your favorite Aaliyah songs in the comments and be sure to check out the other OSF participants.
