*Aaliyah Dana Haughton* (January 16, 1979 – August 25, 2001), who
performed under the mononym *Aaliyah* (/ɑːˈliːə/), was an
American recording artist, dancer, actress and model. She was born in
Brooklyn, New York, and was raised in Detroit, Michigan. At the age of 10,
she appeared on the television show /Star Search/ and performed in concert
