A Special Message from the Haughton Family:

Very early in the morning on January 16, 1979 Michael and I brought Aaliyah Dana with the blessing of God into the world. It took 15 minutes for her to make her presence known. Michael said “I have a beautiful baby girl”. Thus the sweet name that followed her through life. We took her home soon after and she met the brother that would love her and that she would love for the next 22 years.


Mom, Dad, Ra


Tis the season to give thanks and be around family. Many people in the world unfortunately can not be around the loved ones they want to be around. Please hug all of your loved ones and let them know you love them, as tomorrow {not even later tonight} is ever promised. Happy Thanksgiving to the Haughton Family, Aaliyah’s true friends and all Aaliyah fans and their families.
