Funeral

Aaliyah’s white casket is transported by a horse drawn, white carriage from Campbell Funeral Home to St. Ignatius Church. Dash and other celebrities walk behind the carriage. Tons of fans crowded the streets to pay their respects. Jay-Z, P. Diddy, Busta Rhymes, and Timbaland are among the many mourners. Timbaland:
