Repost via @ritareyy: "That’s me in the white. 2002, celebrating Aaliyah’s life. I loved her and still love her so much. I have only ever shared this picture with @kath3000 MONTHS after knowing she was writing Baby Girl’s book! I found the dots that were connecting so insane and I explained to her why I kept my love for Aaliyah very private. I’m still keeping that private but you guys have no idea how deeply my love for her goes, the legacy I was honored to witness…. The way I feel about this book, the way I feel about her music coming back…. It’s as though she took a long break and is coming back to bless us…This woman’s music saved my life, One in a Million was the first album I EVER owned as a pre-teen… Her style made me feel understood… her mystique so captivating yet I could relate to… I feel it all coming back to grace us and I’m so ready 🦋✨ @kath3000 THIS IS IT SIS!!!! 🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋 #aaliyahiscoming"
This post truly moved me! 😭😩❤ Thank you so much for sharing a little part of your journey as an Aaliyah fan with us all. Honestly...with all that has been happening I feel so much positive energy which has uplifted the fanbase in a way which I never thought I'd be able to see again. Looking back at this photo brings so many memories during a time when life was so much more simpler... 🙏🏽
