The official word: August 25, 2011 marks the 10-year anniversary of Aaliyah's passing; an R&B singer/actress with a golden voice, memorable dance moves and a style all her own. BET Networks has produced a brand new hour-long special dedicated to the memory of Aaliyah, premiering Thursday, August 25 at 8PM*. “AALIYAH: ONE IN A MILLION” will take a look at the life, and notable moments of Aaliyah’s short-lived career with never before seen behind-the-scenes footage, her most popular videos, vintage interviews from BET’s earlier years and intimate conversations with the family and friends that knew her best.
“With Aaliyah: One In A Million, we celebrate her life, her music and what she meant to so many,” said Stephen Hill, BET’s President of Music Programming and Specials. “Aaliyah was a beautiful angel and we’re so glad that we were able to assemble her friends and loved ones for this unique special.”
“Aaliyah: One In a Million” is a BET Networks production, created by Stephen Hill, President, Music Programming and Specials and produced by Malik K. Buie.
