Happy Birthday Aaliyah

I'm hoping those of you reading this will remember her or at least know of her, and that those of you who were too young to remember her, have at least been told about her or heard one of her tracks. For those of you that don't know, she was known as the Princess of R&B, and today would have been her 32nd birthday.

When I was growing up she was one of my favourite artists and I remember the day I found out she had died. I was sitting in the same spot I am now, and my sister came in having heard it on the radio and told us - my mum was beside me. There was great hope for her, and it's a shame her eagerness cost her what would have been a remarkable life.

To commemorate her birth, life and career I think it's appropriate that one of her songs be my track of the day today. It's one of my all time favourites and it's a shame that it was after filming this video that she passed away but I'm grateful that the final one, was a good one.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you.. More Than A Woman - Aaliyah, rest in peace, BabyGirl!
