KJ Remembers Aaliyah For Theme Thursday At Noon


Today is the day we lost GREATNESS back in 2001! The whole world learned the tragic news of the death of our beloved ‘R&B Princess’, Aaliyah! Aaliyah Dana Houghton was among nine, who passed away following a tragic plane crash in the Bahamas! WE ALL FELT THAT PAIN!! Also killed in the accident were security guard Scott Gallin, 41; family friend Keith Wallace, 49; record label employees Douglas Kratz, 28, and Gina Smith, 29; hair stylists Eric Foreman, 29, and Anthony Dodd, 34; make up artist Christopher Maldonado, 32; and pilot Luis Morales III, 30.

The group had been traveling from the island of Abaco where the singer shot the music video for her song “Rock The Boat.”

I can remember being on the radio, in Louisville, KY and having to go on the air and tells our listening family that we had lost a family member!! Aaliyah FELT like family to all of us! I CRIED LIKE I KNEW HER PERSONALLY!! Although I never got a chance to meet her, you still couldn’t help but LOVE HER!! As fans, we LOVED HER and her music! We watched her blossom into a budding actress and watched her carve her own way out, into the music industry!! She was truly amazing!!

I hope you enjoy what’s coming up inside the noon hour for Theme Thursday! An entire hour of Aaliyah’s music including YOUR FAVORITE(S)… Cause I know you have MORE THAN ONE! RIP AALIYAH!! You will NEVER be forgotten!!
