The death of Aaliyah (By Truplaya611)

(Originally written as a narrative essay).

R&B music will never be the same. As I was walking around the campus of UMES, listening to the radio on my walkman, on August 26th, I heard some tragic news. Ocean City’s 103.9 OC 104 reported that singer Aaliyah had died in a plane crash while in the Bahamas. My initial reaction was total shock. I was thinking, “Could it be, my baby Aaliyah dead?” I couldn’t believe it, dead at only 22 years old.
