With the 10th anniversary of Aaliyah’s untimely passing around the corner, BET announced in a tweet Wednesday night that a tribute to the beloved Detroit star is in the works and will air next month.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of Aaliyah’s death; the rising R&B singer-movie star was killed in a plane crash on August 25, 2001 in the Bahamas after a music video shoot.
At the time of her death, Aaliyah had just released her third album and had completed production on “Queen of the Damned” based on the Anne Rice novel.
BET is set to honor the lost R&B star with a tribute special commemorating her life. The show, entitled ‘Aaliyah: One In a Million,’ will feature commentary from Missy Elliott, Timbaland, Patti Labelle, Kelly Rowland and more.
Fans can tune into BET on Thursday, August 25 at 8pm est to catch the special. Until then, BET is already underway with a 25 day celebration (starting August 1st) celebrating the accomplishments of the late great Aaliyah.
