Ernie Paniccioli shares Aaliyah memory

“She was playing with me, she was pretending to be mad. The thing about Aaliyah she was always smiling, always full of energy. And I said let me get that angel, that sweetness. [she poses with her arms crossed] She did this whole thing, she starting throwing her fists at me, that was an act. I have the rest of the pictures, and when you look at them you laugh.
It was her 16th birthday, at the Apollo Theatre.”
