How ironic that the day we anticipate the release of one great fallen music legend, we also celebrate the day of another, a fallen angel. We miss you Aaliyah, and today is a reminder of the beauty, the humble, and the talented spirit that we were oh-so-blessed to bare witness to. Happy (30th) Birthday Baby Girl!
