Another bundle of rare photos shared via getty images! 😍 Huge thanks to our big sis @aaliyahalways for tagging us! Aaliyah perfoming live at the KMEL All Star Jam in Mountain View, California 1998 (📸: Tim Mosenfelder)
(Side Note: I notice some fans get pressed when it comes to credit or finding things 'first' seeking validation, ownership and entitlement. That's not cool people. At the end of the day we are all fan pages serving one purpose and one goal, to preserve the life and legacy of Aaliyah. Our pages are NOT about us, so any ego or pride should be left out the door. It shouldn't really matter who posts first, unless it's something you physically own, bought, taken a picture of, or scanned yourself then that's completely different. That is the only time where credit should be given. We've always been one for giving credit where it's due, so we are no strangers to that philosophy. All these years of being a fan and not once have I ever come across such behaviour in this fanbase, and honestly it needs to stop.)
Just thought I'd put that out there for anyone who has a problem with the way we have sourced or collated things for nearly 8 years (and counting). Often at times we see people sharing photos/videos from our old website without any credit whatsoever, and we're not mad at that because it's all about sharing that love and joy with other like minded fans. When you credit someone, yes it's a nice feeling, but don't let it get to your head. This world is much bigger than life over the internet. Just be grateful and thankful people are sharing anything regardless of whether it's low res or high res.
Aaliyah's life unfortunately didn't get a chance to be documented as much in this social media era we live in today, so of course it is a lot harder to find and come across anything pertaining to Baby Girl. Just remember that we as fans all have the same goal, so rather than fight against one another, lets just work together instead.
One love ✌🏽❤️
