BET Plans Tribute For 10th Anniversary of Aaliyah’s Passing


Tray Hova / July 21, 2011

Aaliyah’s death 10 years ago (on August 25th) is still hard to wrap our heads around, and still resonates in the hearts of many. BET has decided to continue the memory of her legacy by honoring her with a televised tribute next month.

Yesterday BET’s official Twitter (@BET) tweeted plans of the tribute by saying “W/ the 10th anniv of Aaliyah’s passing approaching, we’re airing Romeo Must Die today at 8P/7C. Stay tuned for a tribute special next month.” No word on how they will pay homage, but any form of acknowledgement to the Princess Of R&B is not only well overdue, but in high demand amongst fans & the entertainment industry alike. —Keenan Higgins
