Over 2,000 fans have signed a petition trying to fight Virgin Records plans to shut down the official sight of the late Aaliyah. The petition states: “In the wake of the tragic death of Aaliyah Dana Haughton, her fans have converged at Aaliyah2001.com to pay tribute, remember, and honor her memory. These same devoted fans have also come to the site to grieve and mourn her openly amongst others around the world who love and treasure her. It is at the website, Aaliyah2001.com, that her fans feel comfortable expressing their emotions during these dark times and Aaliyah is the light that sustains them. In order to keep her name alive, we ask that Virgin Records keep Aaliyah2001.com up an running because this site means the world to the fans and it was at this site that Aaliyah herself posted messages to her devoted fans. Please Save Aaliyah2001.com!” Petitiononline.com, which hosted the petition, has since shut down.
