Aaliyah, 22 — Died Aug. 25, 2001: Aaliyah Dana Haughton, the R&B star known simply as Aaliyah, had filmed the video for her song "Rock the Boat" in the Bahamas and was flying back to Miami when the small plane she was flying in crashed shortly after takeoff, killing seven of eight people aboard. (The eighth person died from injuries soon after.)
Aaliyah - Rock The Boat "Theres something about her. To this day, even 10 years after her passing in 2001, Aaliyah draws you in. Her allure lies upon the medley of her velvety vocals and her effortless transition from vulnerability to sensuality and back again. We still fawn over each piece of Aaliyah's legacy -- her sound, her style, the beauty in her subtleties. We get lost in daydream of the icon she was becoming." -Rolling Stone
