It's officially Aaliyah's Birthday here in the UK as we are past midnight, so to celebrate we thought we would kick start off with a few rares that we have been planning to share especially for the big celebration. Here is a throwback of Aaliyah at Southfield High School, Southfield Michigan in 1995 at homecoming prom. A huge thanks to Tanya Baskerville one of Aaliyah's high school besties for sharing with us all! 😊❤️
