BET announced in a tweet last month that it would host a tribute to Aaliyah tonight. Today is the tenth anniversary of her death. She died in a plane crash in 2001 after leaving a music video shoot in the Bahamas.
On August 25, 2011, it will be ten years since the passing of one of R&B's brightest stars. BET will pay tribute to Aaliyah Dana Haughton with the one-hour special, "Aaliyah: One In A Million" airing on Thursday, August 25 at 8PM. The show takes a look at the life and the short-lived career of Aaliyah with never before seen behind-the-scenes footage and intimate conversations with the family and friends that knew her best. -BET
Personal note: I am still a huge fan of Aaliyah. I miss her talent greatly and will be watching.
