Remembering Aaliyah

Aaliyah Dana Haughton (B16/01/79-D25/08/2001)
It was nine years ago today that while playing mas somewhere in the Portabella  area of the Notting Hill carnival the news of the death of R&B princess Aaliyah died in a plane crash started sweeping through the streets. The news sobered me up instantly, and as we toasted to her life and looked at posters of her album on walls in the area, news of her passing put a damper to the celebrations for me as once again the fragility of life and how suddenly we can loose it became clear.
RIP Aaliya, and thank you for the music.
