Aaliyah Dana Houghton
by Porscha from Omaha
To me a hero is someone that is helpful and warmhearted. My hero is Aaliyah Dana Haughton. Aaliyah was born in Brooklyn, New York, but raised in Detroit. Later that year Aaliyah performed with the R&B legend Gladys Knight.
Aaliyah Haughton was an extremely talented singer and actress. Don’t matter what she was doing she was always singing or humming. At the age of 5 she already had a superior voice, for that reason she started going to completions. Aaliyah made many contributes to the world. One contribution Aaliyah made was music. She spent most of her life singing and speaking throughout the world.
I admired Aaliyah greatly, because she believed in herself. Aaliyah always said stay strong, and accomplish my goals in life and that natural and inner beauty is important then having the ‘perfect’ body figure.
Even though she is gone, I still appreciate her work, and I’ll always remember that she was the one who taught me to be a young lady. And thank her.
