Aaliyah Dana HaughtonAaliyah

The pop world took a serious blow after it lost one of the greatest soulful crooners the younger generation had to offer. At the age of 22, Aaliyah was killed in a plane crash in 2001. The New York-native, Detroit-raised entertainer seemed to be a hit-record machine with popular songs like “One in a Million,” “Rock the Boat” and “More Than a Woman.”
Jimi Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix

The iconic singer, songwriter and record producer died at the age of 27 after he was asphyxiated by his own vomit. He is remembered as one of the greatest electric guitar players in the music business, and many people say his first album, Are You Experienced, changed rock ‘n’ roll forever.
