Aaliyah's family is devastated at the loss of loving daughter and sister. Their heartsgo out to those families who also lost their loved ones in this tragic accident.
Blackground is devastated eith the loss of our Queen. The example she showed young people will be sorely missed and we hope her short time on Earth will be an inspiration to young people all over the world. We are equally distraught by the passing of our Blackground family members Gina Smith and Keith Wallace. Their hard work and dedication were an invaluable contribution to the success of Aaliyah and Blackground. Our prayers go out to all the families.

Talented, classy, beautiful, warm, sweet, compassionate, humble best describes my memories of Aaliyah. A down-to-earth sister with enough energy to put anyone on a cloud. How unfortunate. Let us pray.
