Publisher Description

Don’t miss the inspirational biography behind the exciting new Lifetime movie Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B, starring Alexandra Shipp as the extraordinary singer Aaliyah.

Aaliyah Dana Haughton was that music business rarity: a teen idol who transformed herself into a critically acclaimed hip-hop soul artist, a singer who successfully made the transition to actress, and a beautiful woman who never let the trappings of celebrity go to her head. Following her impressive debut at age fourteen with the album Age Ain’t Nothin’ but a Number, Aaliyah raised the bar with her hugely influential and bestselling follow-up, One in a Million. She then took her talents to Hollywood, starring in the action thriller Romeo Must Die and the highly anticipated horror film The Queen of the Damned. But soon after the release of her third album in the summer of 2001, Aaliyah’s life was cut short in a tragic plane crash.

Here is the inspirational story of the star The Washington Post dubbed “Hip-Hop’s Lady Di”—a woman who, by the time of her death at age twenty-two, touched legions of fans around the world with her haunting voice and gentle spirit.

Dearest Aaliyah there's not a day that goes by and wish how you would still be here with us, making hits, making movies, touring, etc. etc. etc.... Your talent hasn't been shown comletely, you were gne too soon. I wish iTunes would put every complete AALIYAH music, vids, etc.... Show some respect for true talent not these so call talent out there. Pay respect for her if you have a soul.!!!! Her fans at least deserve to treasure her music one last time.... I'm tired of envying the u.k. and canada for having more Aaliyah than the U.S.A.!!!

A must Read

An almost surreal written account of the late Princess of R&B.
Her upbringing, education, influences, her love life, artistic growth, and her lasting Legacy in the Music scene back then & now. A must read for all her fans.
Christopher had written a marvelous book; a true delicate heartfelt tribute to the late Aaliyah.
