Aaliyah had a pretty short career due to her unfortunate sudden death but even in that small time period, she rose to prominence as one of the finest music stars of her era. Her journey to stardom began at the age of just 10 when she competed on the TV show, Star Search. Soon after that, she got signed by a record label and began receiving mentorship from renowned singer and her future husband, R. Kelly. Finally in 1994, the highly anticipated debut studio album of Aaliyah “Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number” got released and it turned out to be a huge critical and commercial success. Following a highly successful debut, she went on to release two more albums prior to her unfortunate death, “One in a Million” and “Aaliyah”, both of which were a worldwide hit and had established her as an elite star of the music industry. But this amazing career came to a very sudden end on August 25, 2001, when Aaliyah completed the shooting of the music video for the song “Rock the Boat” in the Bahamas and was on her way back home when her plane crashed. In her personal life, she dated her mentor R. Kelly for years and even had an illegal marriage which was annulled later while at the time of her death, Aaliyah was in a relationship with entrepreneur Damon Dash.
