It was 15 years ago today when the world lost iconic singer Aaliyah in a tragic plane crash.
The fallen star was already a success story prior to her passing, but she was destined for so much more than she got to experience. Luckily for us, the legendary artist left us with much to be thankful for through her music, but more so her words and wisdom.
Not only was Aaliyah inspiring to the music industry and those hoping to become artists themselves, she also motivated and empowered women everywhere. Realistically, if you were listening to her music or her interviews at any point, inspiration was delivered.
While there was likely so much more the world could’ve learned from Aaliyah, we’re thankful that she gave us as many gems as she did while she was here.
To honor the beautiful singer on the 15th anniversary of her death, we wanted to highlight 15 of her most inspiring quotes in an effort to keep her name alive and her wisdom present.
See our list on the pages below and be sure to add your favorites in the comment section. Rest in Peace Aaliyah.
“I stay true to myself and my style, and I am always pushing myself to be aware of that and be original.”
“I know that people think I’m sexy and I am looked at as that. It is cool with me. It’s wonderful to have sexy appeal. If you embrace it, it can be a very beautiful thing.”
I want people to remember me as a full on entertainer and a good person.
