Thursday, August 25, 2011 marks the 10 year anniversary of Aaliyah Dana Haughton’s tragic death.  BET will pay tribute to the talented R&B star with a tribute entitled Aaliyah: One In A Million.  The one hour special will highlight her life and career with intimate conversations with family and close friends and feature never before seen behind-the-scenes footage.

The special will include interviews with Missy Elliott, Timbaland, Ginuwine, Damon DashSwizz Beatz, Lala Anthony, and Patti LaBelle.

“With ‘Aaliyah: One In A Million,’ we celebrate her life, her music and what she meant to so many,” BET’s President of Music Programming and Specials Stephen Hill said in a statement. “Aaliyah was a beautiful angel and we’re so glad that we were able to assemble her friends and loved ones for this unique special.”

I, like so many other fans, were devastated when I heard about Aaliyah’s death. She was only 22 years old.  She had a beautiful voice, was an excellent dancer and had her own signature style.  I have often wondered, what would the female R&B singer scene be like if she were still here?

The one-hour special airs Thursday, August 25, 2011 at 8pm on BET. Don’t miss it!!!
