Aaliyah got her first moment in the spotlight at 10 years old, when she appeared on Star Search and performed in concert alongside Gladys Knight. With a record deal by 12, she released Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number, which eventually went double platinum in the US. Her second album featured Timbaland and Missy Elliott, and eventually won her a Grammy nomination and Billboard recognition. Even though Aaliyah was killed in a plane crash in the Bahamas in 2001, her music lives on as she’s been called one of the most successful females in R&B.
