Dear Aaliyah, Thank You For Being a Friend

Ezinne, I told you this on another platform — but the description of your imagined encounter perfectly crystallizes Aaliyah, the lovely young lady that I had the rare opportunity to speak with for an extended period of time during a TV show I Directed back in the day. She was (and is) a shining beacon of talent, intelligence, sweetness, beauty, creativity, and fierce originality. She was one of a kind — much more that One In A Million. I treasure that conversation all these years later: I was a very lucky man that day, and I wish you had also had the opportunity to meet Baby Girl that day. The world is a much emptier place without her, but thankfully her legacy lives on.
