Thank you that I was allowed to work with you.

As five years after „One in a Million“, a new album was announced for July 2001, I became the maker of the German website of Aaliyah – Aaliyah2001.de / AaliyahOnline.de.

In cooperation with MTV in Europe and nice people in the USA an exciting time had dawned. Within a short time, a large European community had formed.

In August a small team flew to the Bahamas for the „Rock the Boat“ video shoot (first single release of the album) and delivered beautiful pictures. On August 25, 2001, on the way back to Los Angeles, the plane crashed. I sat with a colleague when a news ticker showed up with the news.

Rest in peace, you lovely people!
