When: July 25, 2001 Where: The Tonight Show With Jay Leno
Right before her death, Aaliyah was in the midst of a heavy media blitz promoting her third album, Aaliyah. One of the stops the 22-year-old R&B singer made was an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, where she performed her single, "More Than A Woman." Accompanied by a live band and back-up dancers Aaliyah put on a sultry rendition of the track, a style she would become synonymous with, that showcased why the buzz surrounding her was so strong at the time. Just a month later, the singer passed away in a fatal plane crash while traveling to finish the video for her next single, "Rock The Boat."
