- The museum announced that starting August 22 the singer will be honored in the museum’s throwback room. An announcement from the museum read “Got to Give it Up for Aaliyah as she joins the rest of the ‘90s crew in our throwback room for all of baby girl’s fans to pay homage to the Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number songstress…Go Back and Forth with Aaliyah as you jam and reminisce with the iconic singer at our attraction.”
- The #ShowUsYourAaliyah tag is being used by MTLV in a competition where fans will compete for a chance to attend the unveiling during the VIP launch party. All participants have to do is post their best Aaliyah inspired outfits on the new Aaliyah App using the hashtag.
- The invention of Aaliyah’s brother, Rashad Haughton, the app was meant to give her fans a safe space to post videos related to “music, dance, art, makeup and more to celebrate” Aaliyah who undeniably became an icon before her untimely death.
- Aaliyah was only 22 when she died in a plane crash in August 2001, while on her way back to the U.S. from a video shoot in the Bahamas for her song, “Rock the Boat”. Her fans have kept her legacy alive since then.
Can’t wait to see what the sculpture will look like!
