If you're looking for an Aaliyah picture, you've come to the right place. I'll show you some of the best, give you great links, and of course, I have to pull out my own personal picture with Aaliyah- sorry! But you would, too, wouldn't you?

See me there on the right? Too bad I was wearing that goofy press ID tag!

In her precious 22 years Aaliyah achieved more than many do in several lifetimes. An illuminating factor was her conviction to touch and help others via her commitment to various causes that thwart many afflictions of humanity. The Aaliyah Memorial Fund was created as a vehicle whereby the general public could contribute to and support causes that Aaliyah found important. Some of the benefactors already include the Revlon/UCLA Women's Breast Cancer Research Program, the Sloan Kettering Memorial Center for Cancer Research, the National Breast Cancer Coalition and Step-up Women's Network.

Full Name: Aaliyah Haughton, Aaliyah is Swahili for "highest, most exalted one"

Born: January 16, 1979.

Location: Detroit, she moved there when she was 5 years old.She was born in Brooklyn.

Aaliyah personified originality with her enigmatic, smooth vocal delivery, sophisticated musical sensibilities, and a masterful sense of independence. The New York-born singer's 1994 debut album, "AGE AIN'T NOTHING BUT A NUMBER," went platinum and spawned a pair of gold singles: "Back & Forth" and "At Your Best (You Are Love)". "I still remember how nervous I was right before 'Back & Forth' came out," says the charismatic vocalist, who recorded her debut album at age fourteen. "It was my first single, and I kept wondering if people would accept it. When it went gold, I had my answer, and it was just such an incredibly satisfying feeling." She spent much of a whirlwind '94-'95 on the road, with tours that took her across Europe, Japan, and as far as South Africa.

Aaliyah began performing at a young age, and by the time she was eleven, she was singing on stage in Las Vegas for a five-night stand with Gladys Knight's troupe. From there, the dedicated singer would emerge from a non-stop vocal training regimen with a sound and vision completely her own. "It came out of nowhere, yet it felt totally natural," recalls Aaliyah. "I was tripped out. As that first album was coming to a finish, I waslistening back to the tracks thinking, 'Wow, that's really me. This is how I am and how I sound.'"
