Aaliyah’s legacy will forever be cemented into the culture, but a new collection honors the late singer for both her exceptional talents and the love she had for Detroit, MI, just in time for International Women’s Day, reports AfroTech.
KITH has released an exclusive line of photos of the “Rock The Boat” singer that have never been seen by the public before thanks to a partnership with her estate and photographer Robert Whitman.
The collection is a personal one for KITH founder, Ronnie Fieg, who has been a fan of the New York-born, Detroit-raised singer. Her impact continues to touch the lives of generations of fans both past and present. It might even attract even more fans debuting just months following reports about the long journey to clearing the musician’s catalog for streaming services.
In celebration of International Women’s Day, all of the money made from the collection, which is currently almost completely sold out, will go toward the Detroit School of Arts. It played a huge role in the upbringing of the superstar as she managed to graduate in 1997 with a 4.0 GPA all while juggling her quick rise to fame prior to her untimely passing in 2001.
