Aaliyah Dana Haughton (January 16, 1979 - August 25, 2001), better known as Aaliyah (pronounced /ÉËliËÉ/), was an American R&B and pop singer and actress. Introduced to audiences by R&B-pop singer R. Kelly, Aaliyah became famous during the mid-1990s with several hit records from the song…writing/production team of Missy Elliott and Timbaland. She found success with her debut album Age Ain't Nothing but a Number, while introducing a "street but sweet" look which would become her trademark throughout her career. Followed by two more albums, One in a Million and the self-titled Aaliyah, she has sold a total of 32 million albums worldwide, the success has also earn her five Grammys nominations. On August 25, 2001, at 6:50 pm (EST), just after finishing filming of the music video to "Rock the Boat", Aaliyah and various members of her record company boarded a twin engine Cessna 402B (N8097W) at Marsh Harbour, Abaco Island, Bahamas to travel to Opa-locka Airport near Miami, Florida. The crew had a flight scheduled the next day, but since the video wrapped early, Aaliyah and her entourage were eager to return to the US. The plane that she was going to be riding in was equipped with all of their equipment from the video which the crew didn't want to leave behind in the Bahamas. So they tried to fit all of it in the plane. The pilot that was flying their plane wasn't even licensed to drive an aircraft and had Cocaine and alcohol in his system. The plane crashed shortly after take off at 6 p.m. killing all 8 of the passengers on board. 2 of them made it to the hospital but died shortly thereafter. Aaliyah was the youngest one on the plane to have passed on. She and 6 others died INSTANTLY. Taken from Wikipedia. WHAT U ON BOUT AALIYAH GORMAN .........OOOOR. ...CAN SAYY . A LOT BOUTT... HER .!!!

Aaliyah's casket was closed; she died in an airplane crash. The plane burst into flames immediately after hitting the ground; almost every corpse that was found was badly burned and mangled. The coroner's autopsy report states that she suffered severe burns, a blow to the head, and severe shoc…k. She had a heart attack during the time the plane was going down. The report said she was found an estimated 10 - 15 feet away from the plane. After medics and police finished searching the debris for any more belongings or bodies, they said that Aaliyah's chair had been ejected from the burning plane while she was still strapped into it and had landed yards away from the crash. When police and Bahamian officials found her, she was curled up on her left side, like she was bracing herself. Her head was between her legs and her hair had been completely singed off.

I honestly don't think that this question should be up for discussion. Aaliyah is deceased, has been since August 25, 2001 and it doesn't matter in the first place if she was or wasn't. Her business was always kept very much private and I think people need to respect that. Well obviosuly she was…n't I mean she married R.Kelly around 15 and well you know the rest. She was beautiful and rich and probably had several boyfriends. So the answer is "NO"! (MORE)
Aaliyah died in a plane crash in 2001. She died because her plane had too much equipment on it, and too many people and all the weight from the people and equipment exceeded the weight capacity for the plane. Also the pilot who flew the plane lied about being a registered and trusted pilot. He wasn'…t even supposed to be working at the airport, and he was under the influence of cocaine and alcohol. He wasn't licensed, advised, or able to properly run an airplane. The plane with Aaliyah and 8 other members of her Blackground crew was seen lifting off of the runway and into the sky only to be seen minutes later going into a complete nosedive and bursting into flames. The plane crashed into a marshy swamp and Aaliyah and a few others died instantly. Only 2 members of her entourage were taken to the hospital only to die a few hours later due to the severity of their injuries. Aaliyah died from severe burns and a blow to the head, also in addition to severe shock. The coroner even confirmed that even if she had of lived, she wouldn't have been able to continue her career period, she would have been paralyzed, and a big chance she would have been completely bed ridden. Her injuries were way too serious for her to make it out of the wreckage alive. . The man who flew the plane, Louis Morales was also killed instantly. Out of everyone on that plane, Aaliyah was the youngest one to parrish among the victims. She was only 22 years old. (MORE)

No Aaliyah did not or does not have a child. This was part of a rumor that went around after she made the album and song "Age Ain't Nothing But A Number." That's when a lot of people said she was messing around with R. Kelly, even though the accusations were false.
This is a really morbid and obnoxious question! Most likely not, the condition on the plane was horrible, plus on impact she was thrown out the aircraft and landed 20ft into a marsh where she received the fatal blow to the head and the severe burns imagine her body, mostly likely not recognizabl…e.

The singer-actress is no longer living, so the question cannot be answered in the present tense. it is interesting to note one of the songs in (of all things) Anastasia- entitled Track l7 (on albums)- Journey to the past was recorded by Aaliyah in both English, and for some unknown reason, Spanish. … what goes here? Anastasia never saw Cuba, which was the only Spanish-Speaking ( and Communist, still is) Russian colony! I could see the song being done in Russian. let the girl sleep intact in heaven. (MORE)
Although it's truly unknown to the common fans like us, it's always been rumored that she wore a white gown of some sort. We'll probably never truly know.
There was talk of Aaliyah being in a relationship with rnb singer, R-Kelly, but a proven boyfriend of the singer Aaliyah was Damon Dash. Roc-o-fellas co CEO!
From the different reports i have read, she suffered a massive blow to the head upon the plane crashing and deep burns to a bad degree. main reason of having a closed casket she could not be fixed the way her mother and family would have wanted her to be seen. that's all I know. there's even a video… tape that was rolling in the cabin at the time of the crash showing Aaliyah and the other members final moments I've seen it once very blurry it was leaked right after the news of her dying, but soon taken off the Internet that's all i know.

Aaliyah was / is important because she was one of the first female singers to actually introduce what some call "Hip - Hop & B." When she first came out in 1994, she was a protege'e of music crooner R Kelly and with his help as a mentor she went into the studio and introduced her first album to the …world (Age Ain't Nothing But A Number). She was instantly accepted by music critics and heavy hitters in the game alike and critics praised Aaliyah for having a sweet, sultry voice and mature lyrics (considering the fact she was only 15 at the time of her debut album's release and the majority of her album, if not all was written by R Kelly himself). Her style was dubbed "street but sweet" and you can see a lot of her style; The baggy clothes, with a hint of femininity in female artists today such as: Ciara, Cassie and even Rihanna. Her music was always 2 steps ahead of what other female artists, or singers in generals were for that era. When she split ways with R Kelly in 1995 after allegations of a secret marriage between the two, she hooked up with Timbaland and Missy Elliot who were then unknown. She's actually the one who helped them (Missy and Timbaland) become as famous as they did, because they hadn't even been heard of at the time of Aaliyah's switch back into the studios for her 2nd album (One In A Million). After she released her One In A Million album, Timbaland and Missy's career took off and she introduced an urban / neo-soul sound that was not common in the industry. If it wasn't for her sound and style of singing and image, a lot of female artists; Cassie, Ciara, Rihanna, Keri Hilson.. they wouldn't be at the stand points they are now. Aaliyah sold 32 million albums world wide and that number according to Vibe magazine in 2009 is still growing. At just 15 her 1st studio album was certified Gold by the RIAA and she released 3 smash hits: Back and Forth, At Your Best (You Are Love) which was originally sang and recorded by The Isley Brothers in the '70s and Age Ain't Nothing But A Number which the single itself went Platinum. To sum it all up.. She is responsible for the fame and success that Missy Elliot and Timbaland have been accustomed to since the 90's. She is responsible for starting the "Feminine / tomboy" image that you can see more or less in Ciara's videos. She helped Tommy Hilfiger launch his already popular clothing line by becoming a model for him. She helped 1998's Dr Dolittle movie soundtrack go gold with just her hit "Are You That Somebody" which turned into a smash hit for her benefit and was heavily played on radio stations from 1998 - 1999. She ran in Revlon's Marathon for women with breast cancer from 1997 up until her death in 2001. She was the first female to be able to sing in soprano over a heavy hip hop oriented beat via "Hot Like Fire, One In A Million, If Your Girl Only Knew, etc" Since her death her Myspace fan page is STILL Number 1 in the country. On December 18, 2009 XXL and Vibe magazine stated that all 3 of Aaliyah's albums (Age Ain't 1994, One In A Million 1997, Aaliyah, 2001) have past Ciara's "Fantasy Ride" and Beyonce's then released B-Day album by 1.2 million units purchased. On January 21, 2010 Vibe posted on their blog site that most of her songs from her career are the most downloaded for a female singer who is deceased. She is still played on radio stations today, even bypassing Ciara, Beyonce and Rihanna with radio plays for her songs "Are You That Somebody, One In A Million, Try Again, We Need A Resolution" Missy Elliot dedicated her award to Aaliyah at the 2010 BET Awards. Justin Timberlake dedicated his entire "Future Sex / Love" tour to Aaliyah showing clips of her from interviews, home movies and pictures of her when she was younger during half of his performances. Jay-Z dedicated one of his live performances to Aaliyah, 2pac, BIG and Jam Master Jay who passed in 2002. Mya dedicated her song "After The Rain" to Aaliyah and Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes from famed TLC group who passed away 8 months to the date of Aaliyah in 2002. Brandy praised Aaliyah at a 1990's or 2000 Soul Train Music Awards event Rihanna praised Aaliyah on her rendition of BET Top 25 Countdown and played the music video for Aaliyah's "Are You That Somebody" on the show. Ciara praised Aaliyah on numerous occasions and played "Are you That Somebody" on her BET Top 25 Countdown Ne-Yo also praised Aaliyah and showed the "Are you That Somebody" video Keyshia Cole praised Aaliyah and played her "Back In One Piece, Try Again and The One I Gave My Heart To" video collection on her Top 25 BET Countdown special Jadakiss made reference to Aaliyah in his song Why?.. "Why Aaliyah have to take that flight?" Bizzy Bone from Bone Thugs N Harmony said Aaliyah's name towards the end of his song Muddy Waters. Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes praised Aaliyah on numerous accounts before her own untimely death on April 25, 2002. Static Major (from R&B group Playa) made an entire song dedicated to Aaliyah whom he dated from 1998-1999 entitled "Aaliyah, Aaliyah" Boyz II Men also made a song dedicated to Aaliyah's memory entitled "Think of Aaliyah" Her brother Rashad did a rendition of her song One In A Million and added his own verses in and entitled it "One In A Billion" Lil Wayne used the first verse of Aaliyah's song I Don't Wanna in a song featuring Pleasure P called "Rock Bottom" Static Major also wrote a song for Aaliyah before his death in 2007 entitled "For A Long Time" Missy Elliot, Tweet and Ginuwine made a tribute song and video for Aaliyah entitled "Take Away" (MORE)

Aaliyah Haughton's casket was manufactured by the former National Casket Company (of Boston) which had been founded in 1890 and went out of business in the 1980s. Aaliyah's casket was a National No. 20761 design, a seamless copper deposit casket (units made from electrolytically deposited copper …instead of welded sheets of wrought copper) with lavish ornamental corners and a hand tufted premium velvet interior. Due to solid copper walls featuring a thickness of 1/8 inch (3mm), her double lid casket was extremely heavy (over 600 lbs) and extraordinarily expensive - ten to twelve times as much as a standard copper sheet casket (which weigh between 200 and 300 lbs). Aaliyah's casket cost even an extra 20% to 25% more than standard copper deposit caskets because its exterior was silver-plated. National copper deposit caskets of other designs were used for example for the burial of President Franklin D. Roosevelt as well as for Elvis Presley. (MORE)

She was wearing a black tank top and white sweatpants with a blackheadband. If you google "Aaliyah last photo", which was taken rightbefore she boarded the plane, you can see for yourself.
According to the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), theaverage retail price of a metal casket was $2,395 in 2012. (Morethan two thirds of all caskets sold in the US are metal casketsnowadays.) Simple cloth covered wooden coffins, which often are used forcremation, start at retails prices… around US $ 500. (Online casketretailer price; the prices charged by funeral homes are often,although not always, considerably higher). Simple caskets made ofwood (with a wood finish) as well as 20 gauge steel casket withouta sealing gasket are available at prices from around $ 1,000upwards. Sheet Copper and bronze caskets start at $ 2,000 (Onlineprice). Wooden luxury caskets made of solid mahogany which arebetween 2" and 4" thick, resulting in a weight between 400 and 600lbs, can cost between $ 16,000 and 40,000 (particularly if equippedwith one of the last copper or bronze inner liners).

Yea. She was sacrificed by Damon Dash for money and power in the rap game. She was a blood line sacrifice

Most probably, the retail price of her casket is known only to the funeral home and to the family. But also the wholesale price is difficult to quote because when Aaliyah died in 2001, her casket had been out of production already for more than 20 years. Nevertheless some general information as to i…ts price can be given. Aaliyah's relatives chose a very rare and exclusive model - one of the last available copper deposit caskets manufactured by the former National casket company of Boston. The type designation was # 20761, a double lid model with lavish ornamental corners, hand tufted premium velvet interior and a silver plated exterior. Unlike standard solid copper caskets which are welded from 32 oz or 48 oz (ounces per square foot) sheets of wrought copper (resulting in an empty weight between 200 and 300 lbs), copper deposit casket are made in a time consuming process by which copper molecules are deposited on a casket form. The National copper deposit caskets had no joints or welding seams nor did the attachments of the handles penetrate the casket walls. Copper deposit caskets have unusually thick walls of 1/8" (3 mm) resulting in a weight between 600 and 800 lbs. Aaliyah's funeral pictures show that at least eight pall bearers were needed to carry her casket. Other celebrities buried in National copper deposit caskets (of somewhat different design were for example President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Elvis Presley, and newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst. In the 1970s, the wholesale prices of copper deposit caskets, which are no longer manufactured in the US, were in the range of $ 5,000 to 6,000 - about 10 to 12 times that of standard 32 oz copper caskets (available at wholesale prices from $ 500 upwards at the time). The optional silver plating of the exterior added around 25 % to the basic price of the luxury casket. If manufactured today, one of these National copper deposit caskets certainly would be much more expensive than Michael Jackson's "golden" casket, which actually was a polished 48oz bronze Batesville "Promethean" coffin with 14 karat gold plated handles, for which the family is said to have paid around $ 25,000.

The type designation was # 20761, a double lid model with lavish ornamental corners, a hand tufted premium velvet interior and a silver plated exterior. Unlike standard …copper caskets which are welded from 32 oz or 48 oz (ounces per square foot) sheets of wrought copper (resulting in an empty weight between 200 and 300 lbs), copper deposit casket are made in a time consuming process by which copper molecules are deposited on a casket form. The famous National copper deposit caskets had no joints or welding seams nor did the attachments of the handles penetrate the casket walls. Copper deposit caskets have unusually thick walls of 1/8" (3 mm) resulting in a weight between 600 and 800 lbs (empty). Aaliyah's funeral pictures show that at least eight pall bearers were needed to carry her casket. In the 1970s, the price of copper deposit caskets (which are no longer manufactured in the US) was about 10 to 12 times that of a standard 32 oz sheet copper casket. The optional silver plating of the exterior added around 25 % to the basic price of the luxury casket. Other celebrities buried in National copper deposit caskets (of somewhat different design) were for example President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Elvis Presley and the newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst. (MORE)

No, because there is no evidence she had an open casket funeral. Because she was killed in a plane crash, her body may have suffered severe burns or disfiguration.
No, unfortunately Aaliyah did not survive the plane crash. She passed away on August 25th, 2001.
After the American singer Aaliyah Dana Haughton had died in 2001 at the age of 22 as a result of a plane crash on the Bahamas, her body was flown to New York where the renown Frank E. Campbell funeral home of Madison Avenue arranged her funeral and provided the casket. Aaliyah's relatives chose a ve…ry rare and exclusive casket - a silver plated seamless copper deposit coffin with rich ornamental hardware and with a velvet interior. The somewhat baroque looking round corner casket, type designation 20761, was one of the last units manufactured by the former National casket company of Boston, Mass. The double lid design consisted of some 600 lbs of pure copper. There can be no doubt that the casket had an extraordinarily high price because caskets made of electrolytically deposited copper cost up to a dozen times as much as "ordinary" copper caskets welded from sheets of 32 oz wrought metal, and the silver plating of the exterior adds another 20 to 25% to the basic price of the luxury casket, which became the last tribute to an exceptional singer.
