– August 25, 2001), who performed under the mononym Aaliyah, was an American
R&B recording artist, actress and model. She was born in Brooklyn, New York,
and was raised in Detroit, Michigan. At the age of 10, she appeared on the
television show Star Search and performed in concert alongside Gladys Knight.
At age 12, Aaliyah signed with Jive Records and her uncle Barry Hankerson's

mentor, as well as lead songwriter and producer of her debut album, Age Ain't
Nothing but a Number. The album sold three million copies in the United States
and was certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of
America (RIAA). After facing allegations of an illegal marriage with R.Kelly,
Aaliyah ended her contract with Jive and signed with Atlantic Records.
