Fans of Aaliyah Launch Petition for singer to be Inducted into Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame


Aaliyah fans have started a petition to have the late singer inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Since its launch, the petition has so far garnered more than 7,000 signatures.

The petition’s accompanying description references the more than two decades since Aaliyah’s death in 2001, arguing that the singer’s “presence and influence is still being felt throughout the world of music, fashion, film and pop culture.”

The description goes on to name all of Aaliyah’s albums, citing their success in spawning “multiple hit singles” and “millions of records sold”.

The petition lists the likes of Beyoncé, Rihanna, Drake and Normani as musicians who have “credited Aaliyah as a source of inspiration”.
