And though Aaliyah died at a very young age, she managed to created a longstanding legacy in the music industry and among her fans as displayed by the many  #ripAaliyah posts on Twitter and other social media platforms.

In the letter, Jackson expressed her love for Aaliyah and revealed that they both shared a “scared” and “everlasting” bond.
