Happy 33rd Birthday Aaliyah

Today would have been Aaliyah’s 33rd birthday. Check out this video Andrew Baterina dedicated to Aaliyah.

I grew up in a time period where a lot of these icons sadly passed away. My teenage years were surrounded with learning about great leaders like Martin Luther King and JFK. Musically Aaliyah was one of the reasons why I fell in love with R & B in the first place. Her songs were timeless. I feel like it’s a responsibility to let the younger generation know why we do the things that we do. These are my influences and I thank them for their place in our culture.

God bless.
