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.”
