Happy Birthday to R&B singer Aaliyah. A star in the R&B world before she was even out of her teens, who would have been just 30 years young today but Aaliyah's promising career was tragically cut short by her death in a plane crash at age 22. Even with only three albums under her belt, she'd already earned a place as a talented trendsetter among the R&B elite. Gone, but not forgotten.... Happy Birthday baby gyrl. You are truly missed. ~ Love E3 Gossip!
