Visits Japan

Music Performance

Aaliyah visits Japan, meets Japanese fans, shops for souvenirs and rehearses in a dance studio.

I’ve learned a lot visiting different countries, learning about different cultures and that was the best part about the traveling.

Live in Amsterdam

Music Performance

Aaliyah visits Amsterdam and performs her hit singles Age Ain’t Nothin But A Number and Back & Forth.

I always knew I wanted to sing when I was younger. I lot of people think being in this business that you’re going to be stuck up or snobby and that is not me at all.
