Check out how Missy Elliot celebrated Aaliyah, 17 years after her passing

Missy Elliott has penned a touching tribute to Aaliyah to mark the 17th anniversary of her death.

The American singer was killed in a plane crash in the Bahamas on 25 August 2001, and to mark the anniversary, Missy has taken to Twitter to share a video of herself writing a handwritten note to Aaliyah.

Missy, 47, previously revealed that as well as being a hugely talented singer and actress, Aaliyah was also incredibly funny. She shared: “Aaliyah, she was like a comedian. She always wanted to laugh.” The duo first worked together during the mid-1990s and Missy was initially fearful that the singer – who passed away at the age of 22 – would be a diva. However, they immediately struck up a friendship and Missy loved spending time with the ‘4 Page Letter’ hitmaker in the recording studio.

Recalling their first meeting, Missy – who first worked with Aaliyah on her 1996 album ‘One in a Million’ – said: “We were nervous when we first worked with her because nobody knew who we were. She came in and was so warming; she made us immediately feel like family.”
