Aaliyah Rose is a 13-year-old singer, YouTuber, and actress from Provo, Utah. She has always loved to sing. She has said, “Music is in my soul and I hope I can inspire others to do what they love.” From a very young age she would listen to various artists on the radio and then sing her own renditions of the songs she had heard while in the shower. Her genre is R&B/Soul.
Around the age of 5, her mother began to recognize that Aaliyah had a unique sound that was very soothing to listen to. At the age of 10, her parents posted her first YouTube cover. She soon began posting a few more videos and starting getting views. As of early April 2016, her YouTube channel which was started on 2 August 2013, has garnered 89,615 subscribers and over 9 million views. Some of the artists who have influenced her music include Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Adele, Duffy, Colbie Caillat, Alicia keys, Elton John, Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber, and Rhianna.
Aaliyah loves the feeling she gets whenever she can get on stage and express herself through her music. She has performed in venues across the state, leaving her audiences in awe as they experience her unique sound – a sound that comes straight from her soul. Listeners can also find and enjoy her music on iTunes, as well as, purchase her EP “Follow Your Heart” and several of her singles including “Dear Future Husband,” “Elastic Heart,” “Stand by You,” and “See You Again.” She has also starred in popular covers done by other artists such as Alex Boyé’s cover video of the song “Happy” by Pharrell Williams.
At 11-years-old, she was surprised at a local baseball game when Radio Disney announced that she had been selected to perform at the Radio Disney Music Awards. The awards program which was held in Los Angeles, California was geared toward recognizing some of the most popular stars in the music industry, including One Direction, Paramore, Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez. Aaliyah rocked the stage with an unforgettable performance. Accompanied by musicians of a local performing arts high school in Los Angeles, she put her own spin on “Let It Go” from Disney’s movie “Frozen,” blowing the audience away. Disney chose her to sing the finale at the 2014 Radio Disney Music Awards. She sang “Let It Go” at the Nokia Theater for over 10,000 people, and it was televised over and over on the Disney Channel – a delightful dream come true for her.
Aaliyah continues to perform and do what she loves doing most. She is writing more original music and doing collaborations with Dreamworks. She also has a goal to learn to play the piano and the guitar. Her parents Mo and Melanie love working hard so they can help support her in her dreams. She is passionate about several causes including the ‘Our Project’ and ‘anti-bullying’ campaigns. She feels blessed for the opportunity to share her voice with the world.
