Now we have all heard about the sexual scandals associated with the name of a famous rapper R. Kelly. Several women accused the singer of dirty harassment and violence, but the voice of the main witnesses will not sound ever.
12-year-old Aliya (Aaliyah) was a promising rising star of R&B, when I first met popular singer. The world community was in shock when I found out that R. Kelly and his 15-year-old ward were married in one of the hotels of Illinois in 1994.
Unfortunately, Aliya will not be able to tell the truth about his relationship with R. Kelly. Talented singer died in a plane crash in August 2001, she was only 22 years old.
Aliya Houghton for the first time "lit up" on stage the age of 9 years in the American talent show "We are looking for a star" (Star Search). She wept bitterly when missed the ceremony.
11-year-old Aliya performed together with a group of "Gladys knight" (Gladys Knight) for five concerts in Las Vegas. Through the year she was introduced to R. Kelly, who became a mentor to the young singer after signing her contract with Jive Records.
Recently discovered records show that the rapper was working on his debut album girls with ambiguous name of "Age is just numbers" (Age Ain't Nothing But A Number). Kelly played it producer, and songwriter.
The first album aliyah blew up the world of music. Only the U.S. has sold over 3 million copies. Critics and audiences praised the vocal talent of the young singer.
At the age of 17 she recorded a second album together with Timbaland and Missy Elliott One in a Million (One in a Million). He flew around the world 8 million copies. In the same year she became the face of well-known brand of jeans Tommy Hillfiger.
The rapid rise of girls to stardom was cut short just as quickly. August 25, 2001, the singer, along with members of the record company came back on a private plane from the Bahamas. There, they filmed a video for new single, "Shake the boat" (Rock the Boat).
A week after the death of a star of its third Studio album, rose from 19th to 1st position in the charts of the Billboard 200. She became the first artist posthumously won the first place in the charts in the UK, and its single, "More than a woman" (More Than A Woman) conquered the charts in January 2002.
Since Aliya was killed, her name is constantly mentioned in the scandalous stories about R. Kelly. By a cruel twist of fate, she is often remembered for the heinous behavior of ex boyfriend, and not as a star on a global scale, which it was supposed to be. Very sorry when death takes the best. Even worse, when their cherished memory is overshadowed by the scandalous gossip.
