Happy Blessed 39th Birthday to a honorary big brother who made his little sister so very proud; Rashad Haughton! Born August 6, 1977.

DID YOU KNOW: Rashad had a role in the movie “Proud”. He  played the role of Naval saxophonist Hank Fields. He released his first single “Fork In the Road” which made it at #55 on Australian Charts {it was not released in the US}. 

Aaliyah was my little sister, my best friend, my hero, my perfect love. I knew all her little secrets and she knew all of mine. Whenever I was lost or felt there was no way out, she was there to take my hand and guide me through. What made her so special was that although she was a star, when you met her she made you feel like a star.

Babygirl, I will see your smile in every sunrise and feel the warmth of your touch in its rays. I will remember how your tears cleansed my soul in every raindrop and your kiss like the wind on my face. When the birds sing I’ll hear your angelic voice resonate through the sky. I’ll look at the moon and stars and see the twinkle in your eye, I’ll walk the earth knowing that you are everywhere. Looking down from heaven, waiting for your big brother to get there.

Hold her for me God,


- Rashad Haughton


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
