American singer, actress and model Aaliyah is known all over the world as a performer of songs in the style of rhythm and blues, as well as the protagonist of the films “Queen of the Damned” and “Romeo Must Die”. Aliya starred in only two full-length films, both of which were a great success among the audience, and could have created a longer filmography if not for the tragic death that took the young singer at 22.
The full name of the actress is Alia Dana Houghton, she was born in New York and, being the youngest of two children, received a generous share of parental love and care. Perhaps it was thanks to this that the creative abilities woke up early in the girl. From an early age she sang in the church choir and at various small events, in the first grade she first appeared on stage with a small role, at the age of 9 she took part in the Star Search competition, and at 11 she already became a real young singer and performed in a duet with the famous American soul singer Gladys Knight. Of course, such a rapid career growth of the girl was greatly facilitated by Aliya’s successful “family ties”, because her mother, Dane Houghton, sang herself, and her uncle (husband Gladys Knight) was known as a very famous person in show business. In a word, all roads were open for the young artist, who from childhood dreamed of a stage and loved to perform.
His’s musical career The first album of the young singer – “Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number” – was released when Aliya was 15 years old. Famous American musician R. Kelly became its producer and author of all but one songs. Pretty soon this album gained great popularity and went platinum, and some of its singles received “gold” in the charts. Alia’s second album, “One In a Million” was released two years later, and again some of the singles graced the top of the charts for a long time. The next step for the singer was the work on the soundtracks for the film, including “Next Friday”, “Doctor Dolittle” and the famous cartoon “Anastasia”. It was cooperation with these projects that inspired Aliya to try herself as an actress herself.
The first film in which Aliya, already a well-known singer, decided to take part, was “Romeo Must Die”. In this motion picture, the aspiring actress got the role of Trish O’Day. Alia also took a direct part in the recording of one of the soundtracks for the film. Alia got her second – and this time the main – role exactly one year later in the film “Queen of the Damned”. In addition, Aliya has repeatedly starred in the role of herself in various serials and television projects. The last year of Aliya’s creativity Aliya’s acting talent turned out to be almost as bright as her musical one. After filming her first two films, she received an invitation to participate in The Matrix. Several episodes with the actress were filmed, but Aliya did not have time to bring this project to the end. Her third and final album, she, was released in 2001 when she was 22 years old. It was he who indirectly caused the death of Alia. Together with her film crew, the singer went on a trip to the Bahamas to shoot material for a video for one of the songs on the new album. During one of the flights, Alia’s plane, along with all the members of her crew, fell, unable to withstand the load of equipment. Album “Aaliyah” became the bestseller for a long time after the death of the singer.
