Aaliyah died on August 25, 2001, when her plane crashed shortly after takeoff in the Bahamas. 

Also killed in the accident were security guard Scott Gallin, 41; family friend Keith Wallace, 49; record label employees Douglas Kratz, 28, and Gina Smith, 29; hair stylists Eric Foreman, 29, and Anthony Dodd, 34; makeup artist Christopher Maldonado, 32; and pilot Luis Morales III, 30.

The group had been traveling from the island of Abaco after shooting shot the music video for the song "Rock The Boat." An investigation later determined that the plane crashed because it was overloaded by several hundred pounds.
