August 25 is a bitter date every year. It’s when, at only 22 years old, Aaliyah died in a horrific plane crash. This year is the 15th anniversary of her death.
Last year singer Janet Jackson paid tribute to the late “Back & Forth” star. On Twitter, she shared a personal handwritten letter to remember Baby Girl.
