It’s been 16 long years since Aaliyah’s untimely death. It took two years of diligent petitioning; but fans have finally convinced MAC cosmetics, one of the world’s most iconic make up brands, to launch a line in her honor.
Aaliyah Dana Houghton, better know as “Aaliyah”- lost her life in a disastrously fatal plane crash while filming in the Bahamas- leaving her family, friends and fans devastated. But she was NOT forgotten! In fact! the memory of the One in a Million songstress prompted fans to submit a petition to MAC for an Aaliyah inspired line. AND in the Summer of 2018! the Aaliyah line will drop…at last!
Aaliyah was adored by the industry and will continue to inspire fans all around the world. In 2001, BET premiered the music video for “I miss you” accredited to Aaliyah. Actors, Rappers, Producers, Fellow R&B stars and famous friends came together- appearing in the music video in remembrance, expressing their heartache.
“… But i can understand why God would have wanted you close to him, because you were truly an angel on earth…”- Rapper/Actor DMX
